Yesterday was NTU CAC Choir's Concert. After preparing so long for the concert, at last, it endded yesterday. It brought is joy, happiness, satisfaction and many other feelings that I couldn't descrebe through words. I will be truly missing or my choir members and my beloved tenors because the next practice might need to wait until August this year. It will be definitely a hard time for me because I will surely miss my peeps a lot...yea...it's A LOT. Of course, I will miss our beloved Mr. Yong too.
We reach VCH about 1:15pm yesterday. Were doing rehearsal, testing out mics and lightings and bla bla bla... Oh yea, credits to our beloved helpers too. Luckily we have them to help us yesterday, yea...I owe u guys a pot of soup, will fulfill what I promised soon.
3rd song was Diu Diu Dang A. Of course, I felt a bit disappointed because we couldn't do the choreo for this song. I am not sure its whether because of us or Mr. Tham, but, just a bit disappointed because we couldn't perform the "full pakage" of Diu Diu Dang A. Throughout the song, I tabbed Nic a few time, haha...why? Ask him yourself. Kmloh is a TAiwanese tribal song underlining the importance of rice as the Tayal people's source of food, income, and umtimately, life. It was OK as usual.
After the alumni (our guest choir) sang, its our turn for the remaining 4 songs of the 1st half. Animal Crackers, a song consist of 3 part: The Panther, The Cow and The Firefly. I think the audience like it, because the dynamic change were indeed dramatic. Hope that we did it better than NUS Choir,haha. Next is Seal Lullaby. Yea, as the name, it's a lullaby. Heard that some of the friend said, they really fall asleep for this song. I am happy to heard that actually, because the "lullaby" was successful.
The last 2 songs for 1st half were Bartok and Cantemus, both are Hungarian song. For the audience point of view, Bartok might sound weird because it's actually a sad and "suffering" song. But I like it a lot because the mood of the song are changing from part to part. I really can "feel" the song when seeing Mr Yong conducting it. Cantemus means To Sing. This song sums up what the choir does best - to sing with passion and tenacity.
After 15 minutes break, it's time for the second half. Second half is the section where we will sing and dance at the same time. The feel for this year is something like 60s or 70s something like that. The song that we performed were You Can't Stop The Beat, I Get Around, Defying Gravity and The Beat Goes On which is a medley. It was fun to sing and dance. Hopefully our enthusiasm will imppress the audience. =)
After the concert, of course, it's the camwhore session. The night ends with celebrating Li Rong, our VP's birthday.. Aww...its so Xin Fu to have birthday celebration in such a remarkable day. Haha, Happy Birthday LR!!!
