The Overlake Chamber Choir goes to Verona.

Daniel just returned from a 10 day trip to Italy where his school chamber choir performed at the 2008 Choir International Festival in Verona.

 

One of the Choir parents just sent out an email pointing to two clips of the choir performing:

Wanting Memories (they cut off the beginning and the end of the song):

It's cool to see the choir on the web.

 

  • Oh great... I clicked play, and, while the video loaded, used the keyboard shortcuts to unmute the speakers and turn the volume down, because I didn't want to wake my flatmate.  Nothing happened, until the IE window froze, just as the volume unmuted.  Desperately, I tried to open sndvol, but all that did was crash Explorer.  Reached over for Ctrl+Shift+Escape to kill the window before it's too late, and hit my mug of tea next to me.  Leaving me with a burned leg, tea all over the chair, no desktop, and and "na-na-na" playing at full volume.

    I'm blaming Flash player at the moment, but could I submit a request for low-level "mute" hotkey?

  • Mark, your keyboard doesn't have a mute button?

    You can always try a Griffin Powermate: http://www.griffintechnology.com/products/powermate/

  • Amazing - I can't believe I've managed without one!  Although I hope the "programmable driver" won't leave me in the same situation :-)

    (By the way) the choir was very worth listening to, in the end!
