As I sat listening for parts of tonight’s rehearsal with the Fron Choir, which had to be held in an alternative venue from the normal made me consider the importance of occasionally rehearsing in different venues. It was clear tonight that different things could be heard, some things blended better, some didn’t and the whole atmosphere was slightly more energised. Not only does the different acoustic allow for getting out of the grove of regularity, I’m sure the same could be said for the singers. Perhaps a planned change of rehearsal venue from time to time does everyone good. This will certainly be a question I’ll put out on my other twitter account @choralhour to see if other groups do this.
