Ladies and gentlemen meet Ms. Perky Do Do

7 Oct

Hi everyone

Week 4 already. The heatwave has ended and we are now back in autumn, with a Christmas twist.

Weird warm ups again with mama-nanna. Why is that so difficult? Then straight to ‘Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer’, where we were introduced to one of Gary’s made up characters ‘Perky Do Do’. After much ado about the ‘Do Do’s, and a musical sneeze from Kirsten, hysterical laughter set in. I tried my best to make my ‘Do Do’ perky, but mine were definitely more ‘Droopy Don’t Don’t’s’ ;-(

So I’ll put work on my ‘Do Do’s on my ‘To Do’s.

The note-bashing in Rudolph had me confused, until someone realised we’d been given the alto 1 line on the CD. ” Calm down (Lorraine) dear. It’s only Rudolph.”

We then tried to evoke a pastorale mood in ‘The Piper’s Carol’. Pastorale? Really? I ask sheepishly.

We are certainly making fast progress this term and now have five songs off pat (ah she’s canny).  I am looking forward to moving off the books in the (s)mash up, but I was clinging on for dear life on Wednesday night. I think we all felt the same as Gary mentioned the sense of terror in the air. So a night of descriptive ‘P’ words – Perky Do Do, Pastorale Pipers – ended in palpable terror. How fitting.

Ms Perky Do Do
