The Banana Protector

What will they think of next? The talking point in our office today was The Banana Protector, a device for making sure that the banana you’ve put in your bag for lunch doesn’t get squashed before you get a chance to eat it. They are size-adjustable, but I understand they only come in yellow. Here we have a sample, demonstrated for you by the lovely Sid.

LGMC Partying

As ever the aftershow party proved to be plenty of fun - although unfortunately I didn't have my camera with me to catch all the scandal. Here are a few photos from other choristers to give you an idea of the night;

Here's John W, me & Brett supporting Paul L, slightly the worse for wear after celebrating his birthday as well as a successful show!

Darling you were superb!

The Auditorium was quite impressive; 1900 seats and a lovely acoustic.

There was the seemingly inevitable hanging-around as our tech-rehearsal was delayed by problems getting the sound system set up.

John and Rich were both suffering from a throat infection while we were in Turin, but managed to soldier on through the show - although here John doesn't exactly look full of the joys of spring...

Under The Weather


The Settembre Musica festival had put us on posters throughout the city.

This is Advertising

And here's our poster-boy; PK enjoying his publicity...

On the Monday morning (our first full day in Turin) we took a walking tour around the city.

We eventually ended up by the lovely River Po:
