Two events of interest in National Reconciliation Week from 27th May
Our friends from Women in Harmony will be at a local event- Yamin bah / talk place – see Eileen if interested as plans have changed.
And Choirbolical has registered to be part of a national event Voices for Generations singing the song From Little Things Big Things Grow. We will do this a little later after June committments. Meantime see Kev Carmody & Paul Kelly…
May 2nd rehearsal – 6.45pm for 7pm start. It will be a little different as Natalie has other musical commitments, but a fine line-up of people will lead us through a rehearsal. Bring all your music (check current music in Repertoire) as we now work towards our next event with the NUSS choir in June. There will only be 3 rehearsals before then – 16/5; 30;5 & 6/6.
What a lovely way to spend a Sunday morning – singing around town last weekend, and many thanks to Natalie and our fan club including Chris who was there to photograph and video. Youtube links can be found under the Repertoire tab for your enjoyment.
Looking forward to seeing everyone who can make it to sing around town & to have a chat /lunch after. Natalie has the list of songs under Repertoire and practice tracks (including a new Astrid song) to encourage a little practicing beforehand. Haven’t been for a while – bring your music & come along anyway and join in where you can, or be an appreciative audience!!
Meet: Kwong Sang Walk – between Annand St and Ruthven St. Get a coffee beforehand – plenty of choices nearby.
Parking: suggest either of the council car parks in Neil St – free on Sunday
Sing and Walk will include: Kwong Sang / Art Gallery Park / Ground Up Cafe / Elephant Mural / Walton’s Stores where we will finish.
Time to get singing again – holidays, Easter and eating of chocolate is over, so bring your good selves and your music to a rehearsal on Tuesday. 6.45pm for 7pm start. Details of our pop up singing next Sunday at 10am will be announced at the rehearsal and posted after 🙂
A reminder that a choir rehearsal is coming up this Tuesday 4th April – 6.45pm for 7pm start. Don’t forget to sign the register as you come through the door (keeping a register of attendance is a requirement of DeMolay Hall).
