Hi everybody,

Firstly – there has been a change of plans and Blank Space in Toowoomba is pre-selling tickets to the Toowoomba Pub Choir on May 4th. You can get them here:

Secondly – I have some rehearsal tracks for Weather With You. This is the only song I have rehearsal tracks for leading up to the Jazz Club performance, but hopefully they can help. Access the tracks by clicking this link:



Practice this Tuesday

Another do-it-ourselves practice tomorrow – Tuesday. 7pm @deMolay House.

It was a great practice last week. Thankyou to CUA for the space and a big thankyou  to Melinda last Tuesday for patiently playing parts of The Weather With You, for us to record. (I haven’t yet worked out how to load these files ).

Toowoomba Combined Choirs Event

Choirbolical members may be interested in this event being held in Toowoomba on August 11th.

Registration is available with the link below:

Two works have been chosen for the 2018 Toowoomba Combined choirs event. The first is Ralph Vaughan-Wiliams’ Dona Nobis Pacem. The second work is something very close to home, a cantata called It is Well with My Soul

The basic format is that choirs (or individuals) practice on their own (rehearsal tracks will also be provided) then the combined group comes together for 2 rehearsals (Saturday 4th August and Thursday night 9th) and then the performance on the 11th August. The rehearsals and performance are to be held at St Luke’s Church (Cnr Herries and Ruthven Sts).

There is a cost of $20 per participant to cover the cost of the scores. Ideally, we would need registrations complete by 31st March. There are two options to register. You can direct your choristers to the link below and then can fill out the online form, or if you wish to coordinate on their behalf I have attached a form you can submit for group registration.
