I love to sing and I’m in a workplace choir. Our concerts have included The Annual Retirement Shindig, The Annual Coffee Morning Fundraiser and The Annual Christmas Spreading of the Joy. I have on occasion had moments of ethical crisis, as our repertoire comprises many religious songs, but I’ve managed to square that circle with myself as I do love a big old Christmas rendition of Joy to the World.
We’ve sang more than usual this year and I like it. I like the communal singing and the camaraderie and the enthusiasm of an uncritical audience who love an injection of a bit of Christmas spirit into their workday. Our last gig of the year will be The Annual Other Place That’s Slightly Connected To Us Morning Singalong. I can’t wait.
