A Musical Interlude: Fa La La etc....

While Sev spends his days at the Grandes Medievales
I performed in a Purcell trio with a couple of basses.
hacking away at people with a sword, I pass my time otherwise....

On the first Sunday of the event, I was (like last year) joined by some of my pals from the Music Conservatory of Annemasse. 
Happily, they are all a big bunch of geeks like me and think that dressing up in medieval gear and singing period acappella music sounds like a really fabulous way to have some fun.

We performed at five different venues throughout the park.

Considering how huge this festival is, there is very little music being performed there. 

There's a cool group of singing monks, but my group is the only mixed vocal music ensemble.

People really seemed to appreciate us and we even had a few people ask how they could join!

Sounds utterly fantastic, which I am sure it did sound in fact. What a lot of fun!

How exciting! Love the costumes, and I would love to hear your group, too. (Perhaps one year not too far away...)

Looks like so much fun! Wish I were there!
