The second edition of our National Youth Choral Festival ( The Singing Life) began this evening.  We started by rehearsing Schubert's Standchen with special guest ( singer and composer) Dolora Zajick and Ragnar Bohlin at the piano, gave a mini concert and q and a for our 300+ student guests from all over the country, then settled down to working on two movements of Rossini's Petite Messe Solonelle and Larsson's God in Disguise - it's a pretty impressive masssed chorus.
