I love this song and this version is going to blow you away! 75 kids from 11 to 16 yrs old ( there are about 6 lads singing bass) singing my arrangement of Chasing Cars – learned and performed in a matter of a few hours. It’s SO worth listening to it all. I would love Snow Patrol to hear this – does anyone know them? It was a fantabulous experience conducting it too, though today I have conducteritis – a newly named condition that manifests itself as a rather bruised feeling on the upper arms, from waving them about for extended periods of time ( like 8 hours
positively Wagnerian!)- the condition does not have to be gained from conducting music – it could be from winning at bingo over and over again,
or waving for a really long time as all your friends and enemies leave one at a time on slow boats to the Isle of White…that sort of thing.
So seat belts on and listen up…its worth it.
