    I'd like to join, too -

    I've been listening to a lot of Mendelssohn lately. I really enjoy "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The Overture to it is incredible!

    I want to join this but I am not so sure what you are supposed to do when you join a society, do you just say I will join and that is it or is there more to it?

    Basically you just say I'll join, and some people put it in their signature.

    Once you join you just talk on the thread sometimes with other people in the same society

    Welcome btw.

    wayhey! Thankyou. To be honest I don't know an awful lot about classical music but I recently started listening to it and I am currently just finding out what I like so I probably won't add much to the conversation in this thread until I know more.

    ooh loads!
    Even though it is not particularly seasonal (...anymore...) I quite like Benjamin Britten's ceremony of carols.
    Other favourites include Aaron Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man (reminds me of singing in the Royal Albert Hall on my 17th birthday) and Bach's 3rd Partita in E. Ooh there's loads of stuff I like...can't remember it all now though.
    I love how classical music can become like an intimate friend when you know a piece well...I like the feeling of knowing a piece inside out and how it can come to mean so many things as it covers so many subtle nuances of emotion. Love it!

    I didn't do music in school because my mother was evil and wouldn't let me learn any instruments :mad:
    Having said that though, I got my Grade V Theory and Grade V voice but annoyingly even though I can sing Grade VIII songs (I sang "Can't Help Lovin' Dat Man" in my leavers' concert) I wasn't allowed to take Grade VIII voice because my sight reading sucks
    I was in the Senior and Madrigal Choirs at school though, being a Madrigal soloist in the sixth form

    I love opera, probably because it was originally my major in college and I'm still studying it (Any other mezzos in the house?). I'm listening to Susannah right now-- the scene in the church, and the end, and the first act end, love it! Verdi, too, especially La Traviata, and even Mozart as long as I don't have to sing it. I was born to be Dalila! (Except no, not really. ) Oh, and Dialogues of the Carmelites, the final scene gets me every time!

    I like other music too, especially the Russians. Weirdly, I'm not at all familiar with Russian opera, though. I tend toward Italian libretti just because I speak Italian: silly, I know.
