I write this as we find ourselves up in the beautiful mountains of Switzerland, on a plain that seems suspended thousands of feet above sea level and which is simply stunning. Our film crew are enjoying the second day of tour filming with us, and we’re in the middle of a run of some 14 engagements in 18 days. It’s a busy patch, and we’re revelling in it – although it will be great to go home soon and see my family! In particular I miss the weekends; the girls have all started horse-riding on Saturday mornings, and it’s just the sweetest thing to watch them all trotting around one behind the other.
Filming makes you think inwardly about what you’re doing. When you have constant questions about “why and how” you’re doing your job, you start to think quite forensically about the nature of singing and performing. In many ways it’s extremely positive – almost like a self-appraisal for the group – but you have to be on your best behaviour all the time.
The product of this filming patch will be a documentary about the KS, together with educational elements that will help choirs to experience what we do, even if they’re unable to see us perform live or engage us for a workshop. For us, it also marks the 50th Anniversary and where the group is today, creating a lasting legacy that will stay with us forever. Added to which, it’s fun!
