Well, a lot of people liked the lady in the hat in yesterday's orchestra upload; so I hunted out a picture of Isobel at work conducting the children's choir at the concert. I uploaded a b&w version as V2 yesterday, decided I rather liked it and worked on it a bit more for today.
Isobel is a really lovely lady. She suffered a severe head injury, burns I think, as a child, and is never seen without her hat – it's very much her trademark now.
And in reply to Malc's comment yesterday, yes, check shirts are the choir 'uniform', along with caps for the boys.
By the way, these are the children who have appeared in my last couple of uploads looking a bit fidgety and bored. The concert was due to start at 8pm, but actually started after 8.30 because the official dinner beforehand over-ran. (This is France... ) The picture was taken at 11.32pm French time. The concert was far from over... I think they behaved pretty well.
Thanks for looking,
