The Games On Song Xmas Concert

Hello dear followers,

The Games On Song Christmas charity concert was a great success, raising over £10,000 for Games Aid.

It was an honour to work with such a dedicated and talented team of volunteers from the games industry.

We all sang loud and proud and I was very nearly brought to tears by our soloists: Ian, Chris and Katie. I hope everyone enjoyed my solo as much as I enjoyed theirs!

To those of you who supported us by donating or coming along, we cannot thank you enough. It will all go to a good cause and we could not have done it without you.

I hope I will be lucky enough to do it all over again next year!

Games On Song: Bring on September!

Hello again followers,

I have to say, I had an absolute blast at the Games on Song meet and greet earlier this evening.

Everyone was really welcoming and we got some serious singing practice done! (And even managed to fit in a well-deserved trip to the pub afterwards!)

I already can’t wait to see everyone again in September and get cracking with the rehearsals for the concert in December!

If you’re interested in coming along, keep your eyes on the blog for more details later this year.

I’ll do my best!

Games On Song Meet & Greet

Good evening followers,

Our lead designer will be attending the Games On Song Meet & Greet tomorrow at St Martins in the Fields.

Games On Song are a choir formed from members of the UK video games industry, who raise money for charity through their performances.

We’re pretty excited to meet the choir and do some singing for a great cause! 🙂

We’ll let you know how things go anyway.

Hopefully this will be the start of many meetings!

From the enthusiastic founder,

Giverny
