"Mrs Bowcock 'swoons' at the great sounds she heard after school yesterday"

Yesterday was our first Lincoln Choir rehearsal-we had over 85 members and we'll have to order some extra music to accomodate them- This is a 'problem' I love!
 I can't believe how great they sounded on the first as well as a hot and humid day-it's going to be a great year.
I can hardly wait until next week!
