Eric Whitacre’s Virtual Choir (by June 10th):
So, I’m thinking of attempting to sing soprano in this virtual choir. Perhaps you could take my place? My rudimentary understanding is that I will learn my part then don headphones that will probably squash my cheeks and look a cross between a koala and that joke we told in standard 4 about the bus-driver and the bus-door and faster faster. I have printed the sheet music off and had a go of playing my part whilst the 3 year old stabbed every key and shouted at me to stop using her pedal. There are other ways to learn the music (you don’t have to have a piano and/or be able to read music). It’s free by the way. You do need to have internet access and access to a quiet space. Hmm, will it possible this year? You don’t have to audition. Technically, if I make it to the puter with silence and my koala bus door face then you may see me (like a pixel in a photo) in a grid of faces singing ‘live’ in the gardens of Buckingham Palace.
will screen Do The Math at 7pm on Wednesday, June 12th at the Wesley Centre, 13th Avenue, Tauranga.
A brilliant, sobering 350.org movie featuring author, environmentalist, activist and 350.org founder Bill McKibben, Do The Math is a 42-minute documentary about the gathering movement to change the terrifying maths of the climate crisis and challenge the fossil fuel industry. While it is set in the USA, the maths outlined in the film applies globally, making it an important film for all of us to watch. We’ll have a guest speaker, Andrew Martin, book author and publisher of a sustainability blog, leading an audience Q&A afterwards, followed by refreshments.
