Friday 7th arrived and I can confirm that the Strummin’ for Change technical and general rehearsals were a blast for both guitarists, band and singers. The organisers kept running around, putting the finishing touches on so many things, whilst trying to enjoy the show… ah, it’s ok, they’ll be more relaxed tomorrow when it’s all over!
The cast were handed their t-shirts and people picked up the latest merchandise which will be available for sale during the concerts. The singers are already sipping a concoction of warm honey and lemon from their new travel-mugs.
The show is shaping up nicely with Matt Bonanno at the helm this year taking up hosting duties. The guitarists are warming up to reach the dreaded C# and Eb chords, eager to perform well in front of the large audience. The singers are carrying the show brilliantly, and the surprise ending is, well, a heart-warming surprise for you all.
We look forward to welcoming you in a few hours’ time at Sir Temi Zammit Hall today and tomorrow for a musical revolution.
Tickets will be available at the door. Seating is on a first-come-first-served basis, and great music is guaranteed 🙂
