Virtual Quiz Time

27 July 2020

Tonight the choir held its final Zoom session before our summer recess. We return to singing on Monday 7 September at 7:30pm with the music of Howells continuing to form a part of what we do, but a project involving Italian music of the Seicento taking up the great majority of our time. Full details on this will follow.

Quizmaster Lee in Full Flow
Who is the Famous Composer

Our session this evening was our second Virtual Quiz since the lockdown began back in March, and our Musical Director Lee fully exploited the potential of the online format to give us images to decipher, normal questions, multiple-choice rounds, recorded extracts to identify, and the dreaded “Say What You See” round, which utilised specially commissioned artwork from Three Cocks Kettering Quizmaster Robin.

Pavarotti - Strauss - Bach - Tchaikovsky
The Dreaded Picture Quiz

The first quiz, back on 18 May was jointly won by Bennett and Poole, with an honourable second place from Barnes. This quiz was run across all of our MD’s choirs, with the first prize being won by Woodward of the Royal Leamington Space Bach Choir, joint second place from two Northampton Bach Choir competitors Poole and Walker, and the third place jointly by Espin of the Wellingborough Singers and Dicks of the Huntingdonshire Philharmonic Choir. All were agreed that Lee’s expectations in May were rather lofty (!) and that the July quiz was a little more comfortable for those without encyclopaedic knowledge of classical music! We are looking forward to a Christmas Quiz, either virtually, or maybe even in real life (?!?) on Monday 7 December.
