Rubik’s Cube Rehearsals – Every Wednesday – UPDATED!

Update – 19.4.20

Apologies to those who ‘turned up’ for the Rubik’s Cube rehearsal this Wednesday. Unfortunately, due to safety problems with the website ‘Zoom’, we can no longer use that platform. But not to worry – we will be back this Wednesday using Microsoft Teams. Details about setup and login details will come tomorrow. We will be doing some tests today.


It was amazing to see so many of you on Wednesday during our ‘Zoom’ meeting / Rubik’s Cube rehearsal! We learnt that I have to mute everyone when doing the rehearsal, which is the norm apparently with these things! For those who don’t know, Rubik’s Cube is the schools rock choir that used to rehearse twice a week at school – now it will be once a week on Wednesdays at 12pm.

Anyone from Osborne School is welcome along this Wednesday the 8th of April at 12pm on Zoom following the link below! This week we are going to practice our hits and learn a new song. We are also to attepmpt to record a version of the brilliant Bill Withers song ‘Lean On Me‘ over the next 10 days. Adam Mallord had a lovely idea of dedicating the video/recording to the NHS. I am going to ask as many Rubik’s Cube/Osborne School pupils to send me a video of themsleves singing and signing it. Firstly, we need to learn it and I will send further instructions on Wednesday. I hope to see you on Wednesday!

Anyone not recognised as a member of Osborne School will be rejected from the meeting. Below are the words and an excellent YouTube video of a lady signing to the song. This will help you learn the signs.

Lean on me by Bill Withers

Sometimes in our lives
We all have pain, we all have sorrow.
But if we are wise,
We know that there’s always tomorrow.

Lean on me when you’re not strong
I’ll be your friend, I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on.

Please swallow your pride
If I have things you need to borrow
For no one can fill those of your needs
That you won’t let show.

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on.
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand,
We all need somebody to lean on.

Lean on me when you’re not strong
And I’ll be your friend I’ll help you carry on
For it won’t be long
‘Til I’m gonna need somebody to lean on

You just call on me, brother, when you need a hand
We all need somebody to lean on.
I just might have a problem that you’ll understand,
We all need somebody to lean on.

If there is a load
You have to bear
That you can’t carry
I’m right up the road
I’ll share your load
If you just call me.

Thanks

Ben Dlugokecki, Musical Director of Rubik’s Cube
