Ewe Thina Lyrics

Hi all, here are the lyrics for “Ewe Thina”, which we have learned by ear in rehearsals.

Ewe Thina

Ewe Thina
Nyathe amadimoni

Ewe Thina
Sizowa nyathe amadimoni
I am working on the practice recordings for “Heyr Himna” today, so check the website tomorrow and they will be ready. Don’t forget to keep listening to “Father Father”, “Sing Me to Heaven”, and “I Wish I Knew…”. We will look at these on Tuesday!



Fundraiser Concert April 9th

Hi all,

Some information and a link to the flyer for a concert in Toowoomba this Sunday, April 9th, that might be of interest to you.  I’m honoured to have one of my own pieces included in the program!

Three women composers with Toowoomba connections will be featured in a special fund-raising concert on Sunday 9th April.

Well-known singer and performer, Elaine Coates, with Fay Miller on piano will be presenting “A Singing of Stories -Songs by Australian Women Composers” at St Stephens Church at 3pm.  As well as showcasing works by Australian women, the concert will raise funds for Elaine’s humanitarian aid trip to Uganda to work with children in slum schools and with the African Children’s Choir.

The featured composers are Astrid Jorgensen, musical director of Toowoomba group, Choirbolical; Shannon Gralow, currently starring in “Wicked” at the Empire Theatre and Sharney Russell, jazz icon.

Guest artist will be Sharon Matheson on harp.  

 Tickets are $20 waged and $15 unwaged and are available from Elaine by email or phone 4596 6381.

(Tickets for the Dalby (30th April) and Bundaberg (25th August) concerts will be available soon.)


Festival of Voices singers ticket purchase

To spare you of the frustration of trying to do something that is not currently doable:

I have just spoken to a representative with Festival of Voices as I was unable to purchase the  $99 ticket each Choirbolical member will need to purchase.

They are reconstructing their website and the ticket purchase option for singers is not available.   I was informed it may not be available until May.  They said “Don’t worry”.

They are “fully aware Choirbolical is attending” as we are registered already as a pop up performing choir (bless you Astrid!).

Hopefully this will make things easy for the rest of you!

Another gentle reminder:  Fee’s for 2017 are due the end of this month. Please visit the website for instructions how to pay or see Catherine after rehearsal.

It has been suggested we start wearing our Choirbolical name tags to rehearsal, it is a friendly gesture for our new members.

Look forward to seeing you all Tuesday!
