Cantilena starts the countdown to the Summer 2011 concert.

The weather at last seems to be improving and we have hopes that at the "Folk at the Barn" concert won't actually be in the barn but in the open.

There's always a lot of work connected with any Cantilena event, but concerts in venues that are not primarily intended to be used as such take a deal more!

Chairs have to be commandeered. The Rural Life Museum, not being an events venue either, has some but not enough for the audience we hope to attract. St John's Church, Glastonbury is kindly lending us some as well. But for the choir to be able to sit down, we will have to bring our own!

There will be wine and soft drinks in the interval, in the barn, so we have to bring bottles, glasses, coolers and have tables all ready.

We have to make sure that the gates are all manned, access is right and have someone to handle the money.

If it pours and we sing in the semi-lit barn, how are we to see our music? So we have made sure that we all have personal lamps to light our folders!

However, we wouldn't do it if we didn't think it worthwhile for the chance to sing in such a lovely and unique setting

And we wouldn't do it if we didn't think our audience would enjoy it too!
