My blog this week is inspired by @weeklyblogclub and prompted me to think about what musical facts you may or may not know about me!
I started learning the clarinet at school in 1977, taught myself to play the guitar from a Christmas carol guitar book in 1980 and am currently learning the flute, and play clarinet and flute with Bewdley Concert Band
I took part in several musical productions when at school including Oliver, 1066 and all that, and my crowning glory was playing Prof Higgins’ mother in My Fair Lady to a Prof 40+ years older than myself!
In my first year at Aberystwyth university I took music as my additional subject and took classical gutar lessons and sang in the chorus of that years musical production of the Gluck opera Iphigenia in Tauris.
I sing with the Kidderminster Valentines (a 4 part female voice choir) and we have recorded two CDs and this week start recording our third, which will be of Christmas music, and we have been asked to audition for this years Britain’s Got Talent!
