Trish Burgess is filled with song after joining Spalding choir Mirinesse
Mirinesse is an olde English word meaning 'filled with joy'. It's such an apt name for a female choir based in Spalding that has recently welcomed me into its ranks. Certainly, since joining just a few weeks ago, I've remembered how wonderful singing is for the soul.
It's been over a year since I last took to the stage, as The Wicked Witch of the West, in the SADOS production of The Wizard of Oz. I like to take an acting break now and again but I realised that I really missed the camaraderie of group singing.
Director, Samantha Graper, formed Mirinesse in 2015, with an aim to bring both secular and sacred music to a range of venues in the local area. The ladies sing in two-, three- and four-part harmony, accompanied by pianist and organist, Peter Graper.
