Thanks for your patience,
On Tuesday 5 December we’ll gather at the ‘CUA Hub’ in Ruthven Street (near the Walton Stores laneway) meeting at 6:30 to start singing at 7pm. Astrid has chosen a selection of music we’ve learnt this year as well as some Christmas Songs.
The CUA are excited that finally their new piano will be used.
Wear your brightest, cheeriest colours.
Encourage your family and supporters to come to be our appreciative audience (as well as to join in) and bring drinks and nibbles to enjoy after the singing as we round off 2017.
On Tuesday 12 December we have the opportunity to sing to patients and staff in various corners of St Vincent’s Hospital.
Meet at 5:30 for a 6pm start til 7pm This is our last performance for the year and a chance to bring some enjoyment to members of our community.
We’ll sing the same repertoire as the previous Tuesday
If you are able to come, please let Catherine know by our next rehearsal on 21 Nov so the hospital organiser can distribute car park vouchers. We will find out closer to the date where we’ll meet.
For those of you who would like to print the horizontal version of Gaudete that Astrid wants us to use, it is available thru the Choirbolical website under Repertoire (you need to be logged in). It is listed as below: You will need to scroll way down.
