This year she entered the local music festival and came first in the under twelve soloist category. She was thrilled to bits to be awarded a trophy for the year which will bear her name against the year she held it. As you can see, it needs a polish already.
I don't know where she gets her singing voice from, it's certainly not me as I'm tone deaf.
Oh well done Eleanor on both scores, pardon the pun! Singing a solo can be very daunting.ReplyDelete
I'm a member of a choir. I love singing - something that has stayed with me since school.
How wonderful, well done to your daughter!ReplyDelete
Well done Eleanor!! What an achievement - you must be so proud!!ReplyDelete
Thanks, everyone. Eleanor was really chuffed to read your comments.ReplyDelete
Well done to your daughter!!! Singing is to my mind the most exposed of all performances, because it all comes directly from within. No 'hiding' behind an instrument. My daughter sings and plays the violin and clarsach, so I know that she feels singing is something different to performing on her two instruments.ReplyDelete
That's true, Linda. Eleanor loves to perform and doesn't seem to have any nerves when singing in front of people, I hope that continues as I know that nerves can creep in with age.ReplyDelete
