    Default Hello from London UK

    Hello Everyone and I am happy to meet you all :-)

    My name is Sally and I live in London, UK. I am working from home at the moment as a PA in a big corporate and I love all kinds of classical music, especially Mozart.

    When I was younger I had classical voice training (soprano) and used to sing with the Royal Choral Society many moons ago! I was never a professional singer but did one or two solo gigs with the local music society.
    Looking forward to reading the various threads here and contributing to discussion.

    Welcome to TalkClassical, Sally. Though I love composers from all eras, my favorite is Mozart. I hope you enjoy the forum.

    Welcome! I admire anyone who can sing. I've tried, but with just a voice, there's nothing between you and the audience, and it's kind of jarring, at least for me. I play woodwinds. At least I have something to hide behind and I have something to blame if everything doesn't go right.

    Hello Sally, and welcome to Talk Classical. Enjoy the forum. It's mostly harmless.
    I treat my music like I treat my pets. It’s something to own, care about and curate with attention to detail. From a blog by hjr.

    Greetings, Sally. Yes, you will probably start spending more and more money in the quest of this or that intriguing recording... Ask anyone here, how many copies they have of any given piece...
