Yesterday as "stage manager" during the Vocal Light Top Festival in Apeldoorn I heard 16 different a cappella groups in a competition for small a cappella groups with 3 - 9 singers. Because of that, I missed more than 50 other groups, among them the bigger a cappella choirs, the amplified groups and the huge pop choirs. Anyway, I had a great day and heard many beautiful songs!!
In the evening I skipped the free dinner to be able to see and hear the BaSix soundcheck. Some people had to make sure nobody would enter while BaSix was soundchecking. Of course Martin and I volunteered for this job ;) And because everybody was having dinner, it was a very easy job and we could enjoy the soundcheck. Nice guys with beautiful voices! After the soundcheck we quickly managed to find something to eat, just before the evening programm started. During the show, the winners of the different competitions were declared and they were allowed to sing one song. The BaSix show afterwards was great! I really loved it. It was too short, if you ask me ;)
I've had a good night sleep now - I was pretty tired yesterday!
But the a cappella fever is not over yet. Today we'll go to Wesel to see the Wise Guys, with ten people from the Netherlands!
