We six headed up-island on January 22 as guests of St. Michael’s Chemainus Classical Concert series. It was a stormy start with torrential rain, a tree down on the highway, dying cellphones hampering communication between cars, and bold decisions to reroute our journey through some dubious backroads to get through Goldstream Park and onto the Malahat. But such minor inconveniences are just part of the thrill for Hexaphone! We arrived at the performance with minutes to spare and made the curtain. It was a lovely old church to sing in — and always a pleasure to sing to a full house and appreciative audience. Best of all, it gave us a chance to properly baptize Ian and Hannah as full fledged Hexaphonists! Ian’s solo in O My Love is Like A Red, Red Rose was so beautiful, a soprano could be forgiven for losing her concentration and flubbing an occasional note (the score is only a guide, after all). We have worked hard towards building the ensemble since our first rehearsals together in October. Just wait until Saturday, Victoria!
