That could get really ugly!

I'm familiar with the sing alongs and... depending on the year the degree of discord can be, errr noteworthy but...

but - play along? owwwwwwwww

wish we could go anyway ;p

We'll most likely be entering Ashland as the Oratorio commences.

Re: owwwwww

Actually, it was quite nice last year. There were enough people who were able to sing on-key that it worked well.

And the musicians were actually quite talented. Yeah there were occasionally muff-ups, but all around, it was fun :)
