Recently the members of Glee Bah Gum went to London to see the Award Winning West End Musical ‘Wicked’. The shared experience was enjoyed by all! But… how did we get to this point?
Early in 2013 our Musical Director; Lizzie sat at a committee meeting and proposed that the choir set a goal for the year ahead; to see a Musical at a Theatre in London. As with all the big decisions in the choir we took it to the members and asked them; the answer of course was YES!!! It was going to be a lot of hard work as we didn’t have enough money saved subsides the cost of people going; we knew we needed to raise enough over the year so we could make it happen. It is a good job the members love to perform as it was the commitment to the performances which meant we could offer everyone the chance to come along.
Quick march for us all to the coach as we had been promised a short trip along the embankment by the driver if we were quick. Well seems we were very quick as he drove us through the bright lights of the city at night, going back and forth over the River Thames and pointing out all the sights for an hour or so. He was a star who made it happen out of the goodness of his heart.
The trip was a success and with plans underway to reach our next milestone the Glee Bah Gum members remain enthused, inspired and excited about our forthcoming ventures!
