Performance 7th Aug meet 7pm

Our performance next week Tuesday 7th August – we meet before 7pm at Clive Berghoffer Centre Tennis Centre entrance (refer to map attached).  It is behind the fitness centre – plenty of parking behind the centre near the tennis courts.

Singing in your cars on the way so we are all warmed up ready to do a run through of our repertoire.  We will be performing at 7:30pm for half an hour.  It is Xmas in July so wear something christmassy bit of tinsel will do.

We are singing Silent Night , When a child is born , Mother Earth, Fields of Gold , Weather with you, Thule Mama Ya, Red Hot, Unchained Melody – not necessarily in that order.  And there may be something like We wish you a merry Christmas thrown in…

I have attached Silent Night, When a child is born and the map.

Just a few dates to put in your diary.  Let us know weather you can attend these performances.

Performance at USQ – Tuesday, 7 August at 7.30 pm

Ann Maree requested Choirbolical consider performing at a social night for a seniors (50+) gym group at USQ on Tues 7 August. We would sing for 30-40 mins from 7.30 pm.

VOCE made a list of 6 possible songs and agreed with Ann Maree’s suggestion that, if we called it ‘Christmas in July’, we could sing some well known Xmas songs to extend the singing time as well as dressing in a Christmassy fashion.

This a regular rehearsal night .

Suggested repertoire pieces for that night’s performance are:

  • Mother Earth
  • Fields of Gold
  • Weather with You
  • Thulele mama ya
  • Red Hot
  • People Get Ready

Suggested well-known Christmas songs/carols to encourage everyone to sing along were:

  • Away in a Manger
  • Silent Night
  • We Wish You a Merry Christmas
  • Jingle Bells

We are welcome to arrive at 7.00 pm to join them for dinner/nibbles but don’t need to bring any food.

Where:  The Tennis Centre (upstairs) at the Clive Berghofer Centre at USQ.  There is parking on site.

Performance at Mary MacKillop Catholic College – Saturday, 11 August at 4 – 5 pm

Suzie asked whether Choirbolical would be willing to perform 3 songs as a follow up to a day of choral singing by students from the school; intended as a demonstration that it’s possible to continue the fun and camaraderie of singing in choirs throughout your life.

Repertoire suggestions:

  • Mother Earth
  • Fields of Gold
  • People Get Ready

Where:  75 Highfields Road, Highfields (in the hall).

– Check numbers available to attend at rehearsal.

Possibility of Hiring a bus for the Esk Community Choir Gala Choral Concert on Sunday, 14 October depending on numbers

We discussed the possibility of hiring a bus for those who would prefer not to drive to Esk although car-pooling would be an option, as well.

The bus would leave Toowoomba at say 10.30 am (to be in Esk by 12 noon) – the concert is at 2.30 pm followed by afternoon tea – with the return journey to Toowoomba leaving at say 5 pm.

Songs for the Esk performance are to last no longer than 10 minutes.

Thank to Nev Madsen for taking a wonderful photo of all of us for the Artworx advertising.

Choirbolical name badges to be worn at rehearsals (to assist newer members) and at all inter-choir functions/performances.

An end-of-year celebration will be held after our final performance for the year, on either 7th (Christmas Wonderland) or 8th December (Combined Concert with Vocal Ensemble).  To be confirmed.  How many people would be interested on these dates?

Anyone having trouble accessing the repetoire section talk to Lesley…
