Chamousset-en-Lyonnais : Drummers and Choir

version en Français german Variante photos collection

Nine Drummers of the Music School du Canton de Saint-Laurent-de-Chamousset, belonging to six musical associations, participated, on 2008 June 13th and 14th evening, in the biennial concerts of the Choir La Soleillée, having eighty members, under the musical direction of Bernadette Passelegue, and the responsibility of Michel Passelegue.
The choice for this time was : Revolt, Freedom, Hope. The collaboration with the Drum since seamed obvious, even if it surprised of course a large part of people.
Personal work, in order to offer a various and enough high program, the entertainments, to perfect the parts with the Choir, accompaniments on the recorded tape, the regulating for the sound volume, the displacements of the Drummers, the fittings of costumes : all that was rather heavy. Nonetheless, the nine present and chosen Drummers, which had consisted of the importance of event, were faithful to their commitment, with an always real will, a conscience, a good mood. They were rewarded for it by memory to have participated in two closed in advance Concerts, and contentment that the members of the chorus, their leaders and the public qualify our performance as particularly professional.
