Only appropriate after a metal group. 180 degrees from Killswitch Engage. During the summer between grade 11 and 12. Our schools Chamber Choir went to a choir festival in St. John’s, Newfoundland. It wasn’t a competition but a celebration of Newfoundland being discovered 500 years ago. We had been singing a song by The King’s Singers, who just so happened to be there! We had a workshop with them and the 6 of them came in amongst the choir to sing with us, I may sound like a music nerd, but that was pretty cool! Yep, they’re on my iPod! 6 men from England, I believe. Very good! I have 3 CDs, “The Beatles Connection”, “Good Vibrations” (not a tribute to Marky Mark and The Funky Bunch), and “My Spirit Sang all Day”. I really like them.

I got back from Newfoundland and asked mom imediately to see if there were any CDs of their’s in the Golden Mile mall at a store called “Bach & Beyond” as far as I know it’s the only place in Regina that sells classical music CDs?
