I just wanted to put in a plug for this festival in London and invite anyone who might be in the area to attend one or all of the concerts. I sing in Cappella Romana and am very excited about this trip. I am the tall tenor in the center of the formation, you can't miss me, please come up and say hello. We are being hosted by the English Chamber Choir who we are all very excited to meet.
