My performances in an abbey and stately home

Post by lucy » Sun Apr 23, 2017 2:54 pm

Just letting people know that I've got two nice performances in July. Would be lovely to see anyone, if they're in the vicinity.

Also, I've now got a Facebook page. If you "do" Facebook, you can "like" me, if you like! :wink:

Thanks. :)

Just looked up the origin of that phrase. Of course, it's ironic, but no one seems to know where it came from! There are many theories....

Old time ski-ers used to use it on each other after getting off the chair lift, at least in the US in the 50's - 60's but no longer in vogue.

Have fun with the recital! Will there be a youtube video?

In Australia we use the term "Chookas" when we want to wish someone good luck for a performance. I am led to believe that it is uniquely Australian but I'm happy to be proven wrong. Anway, Chookas for your forthcoming recitals.

It's theatre talk... you never say "good luck" to your fellow actors. But there's always the operatic term, "toi toi toi", which means "break a leg," basically...!

Yes, I will be filming it. Hopefully, I'll put some of it online. I'm certainly working very hard on the pieces, so I hope that'll pay off!

I'm half Swiss and used to ski a bit, so saying "break a leg" is spot on. :lol: I remember my dad used to be so careful on the slopes, because he ran his own business!

Chookas! I like that. :D And there's an entry on Wikipedia about it too. Certainly, the English don't call chickens chooks, so it probably is an Aussie only thing. Good to be unique!

Yes, this is the main entry on Wikipedia. Apparently, wishing someone good luck is jinxed, so they say the opposite. Amazing what you can learn from the internet! :)

That's a terrific set of gigs to do Lucy, or rather, Nina! And though its actually quite close its still term time so lessons will still be on.

Given that part of the world though, I suspect we know some people in common!

Thanks so much Stephen. :) Yes, I'm really looking forward to them.

Mottisfont will be a lovely place to play, as people mill around the house and garden. The plan is to play one day in the house and the other in the walled garden, amongst all the flowers! Hope the weather plays ball.

Well, playing in the abbey....it's a beautiful church and I'm very excited about it. So inspiring!! They're going to set up a stage for me, so the guitar will project really nicely. It sounds lovely in there!

Only a couple of months to go.
