Tonight I was at Fort York Armoury, a beautiful old building with lots of character. I was rehearsing with the Royal Regiment of Canada band for a concert on October 30th. They all made me feel very welcomed and all were excited to be rehearsing Howard Cable’s arrangement of my first song, “We’ll Never Forget/N’oublion jamais”.
I asked Danielle Bourree to assist me in singing the chorus in round, as I think the song sounds best this way. She has a beautiful voice and I feel very happy to be working on another concert with her.
This arrangement includes bagpipes (I love the sound of bagpipes). Unfortunately, there were no bagpipes there tonight. I know a few more rehearsals are scheduled from now to October 30th…meanwhile, I have a new song to learn that the 3 soloists will be singing for the finale…more on this later!
