Proud Dad moment again!

Post by DarkDeamon » Sat Sep 08, 2018 6:47 pm

My son auditioned and was accepted for the National Youth Choir at the tail end of last year and has done two music camps and major performances with them this year. That's one of the reasons I was back in August this year and not earlier so I could catch their summer performance at Leeds Cathedral.

The choir has contacted us as they would like our son to perform at the Royal Opera House as part of a small kids choir for the performance of Carmen is being run in November and December. It's only a small hand picked group of the kids performing and it will be a professional performance, i.e. he's going to get paid for them!

We're just trying to coordinate with school now as he's going to need to miss a few days school. Might also have to swing back to the UK in December for a day or two!

Tbh, what they are paying him should just about cover the train fare and accommodation costs. What it's not going to cover is his mum's loss of earnings when she has to take days off to shuffle him between Norwich and London. He's also going to need to miss 7 days of school but the headmaster won't have an issue with that due to the opportunity being offered to my son.
