Please respond by email to Kent if you are planning to go to Tenterfield. See message following from Kent:
We have a 20-seater bus (free) to take us to the Tenterfield “Big Chilly Sing” on Sunday 7 July, departing Toowoomba 7 am (venue to be advised, but there will be parking to leave your car) and returning 5 pm. Chris Meibusch has kindly offered to be the driver (he is a very experienced bus driver – many football trips). The workshop – conducted by James Cuskelly and Fay White (a great teacher and composer of songs for community choirs) – starts at 9.30 and then there is a lunch provided and a concert at 2 pm.
Can you please confirm with Kent Smith by email – [email protected] – if you are intending to travel on the bus or whether you are going to make your own way there? Thanks very much”
Choirbolical folk have been invited to participate in the workshop or come along to the concert of Rutter’s ‘Gloria’ see details on the attached flyer.

“Choirbolical has been invited to perform at the Winter Chill Big Sing in Tenterfield on Sunday 7 July, organised by Queensland Kodaly Choir. There will be a workshop in the morning for anybody wishing to attend (Fay White and others will be the facilitators) and then a concert at the Tenterfield Town Hall in the early afternoon. Matt has made himself available. We need to know numbers very soon to see whether it is viable for us to attend – could you please let us know at the next rehearsal whether you are able to attend? If there are enough of us one option might be to hire a small bus. And thanks again to everybody for a wonderful night on Tuesday – the feedback has been all positive.” Kent.
