I’m ready for my close-up

Some rather exciting news is beginning to leak out this morning regarding the cathedral choir. It seems that a TV production company that makes documentaries for RTÉ is going to make a fly-on-the-wall series about the Christ Church choir.

For the next 2-3 months we’re going to have camera crews watching our every move – attending rehearsals, meetings, and all the sung services in the cathedral. As well, a small selection of the choir (presumably some of our more colourful ‘characters’) will be filmed at home and at work outside the cathedral.

This is obviously a very big deal, and will have a significant impact upon the cathedral, in terms of raising its profile as a tourist attraction, and financially (both the cathedral and all those taking part will be getting paid!). It will mean an awful lot of disruption, but hopefully it will be a lot of fun too. As a choir, of course, this will be a great opportunity to raise our profile and attract some new singers.

Update: I should probably add that this story is, of course, a complete fabrication. April Fool!

  1. For a couple of hours this story was referenced (presumably as if it were genuine) on the official Christ Church website. It was only when I pointed out the date that it was hastily pulled.
