22nd Septemeber 2007 - The first gathering

    THE DCJC PIONEERS
The very first rehearsal of DCJC – welcome everyone.

    MRS SMITH CONDUCTS
.............and the chorus words are, 'Du, du, du, du, du ,du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du, du!'

    ARE YOU ALL WATCHING?
Everyone keeps their eyes on Mrs Smith.

    SHADOW PUPPETS ?
Mrs Smith shows how “A Cat called Alexander” would conduct!

    WITH THE EXETER CATHEDRAL GIRL CHORISTERS
It was great to have some extra voices for part of the practice when the Girl Choristers of Exeter Cathedral came for a few minutes – they added a second part when DCJC was singing 'A Cat called Alexander.'

    ACCOMPANIED BY MR TANNER
Mr Stephen Tanner, the Director of the Girl Choristers of Exeter Cathedral Choir joined in himself by accompanying on the piano.  We liked his jazz piano playing.

    MUSICAL ENSEMBLE
We had 15 singers at our first DCJC practice, from all over Devon – and didn't we make a good sound?!  Here we are joined by the Cathedral Girl Choristers at the back.

    MR MILLINGTON AT THE PIANO
We were very fortunate to also have Mr Andrew Millington, the Director of Music of Exeter Cathedral to accompany some of the practice.  His improvised 'finger clicks' were very good!

    GROWING TALENT
Our youngest singer is Megan.

    MRS JEANIE HONEY
Mrs Honey is our Choir Secretary.  She helps Mrs Smith with organising everything, and made some delicious chocolate brownies for our break time.  Everyone went back for seconds!
