Choir break-up

Coming up this

This Tuesday 20th Dec – Final Choir night – Break-up and Farewells – 6.00pm for Drinks & bring a plate to share (tea & coffee provided). 7:00pm Sing for ourselves – finishing the year with a sing through selected repertoire from the past year or two (please bring music from the last two years including Shackleton which I’m sure we will nail and perform in a night!! ) Family & friends are most welcome to join us.

2022 Farewell – After two challenging (think of all the Covid hesitancy and restrictions), wonderful years with Morgan as our musical director, he has decided to move on and focus on a new teaching position and study.  We wish Morgan all the very best and thank him enormously for sharing his love of music. We will also be farewelling Eligh who has been playing piano for us during the year, as he is moving to study in Brisbane!

2023 Where to next for Choirbolical? Some of you will remember Natalie Otto accompanied us at the end of 2021. This year Natalie has taken time out to travel with her family around Australia, but will be returning to Toowoomba in the new year and we are excited to welcome her to be our Choirbolical musical director for 2023. 

FEBRUARY WORKSHOP – please put Feb 4th – 9am-12pm with lunch to follow on your 2023 calendar. This is always a great way to start our year of singing and good to invite anyone interested in singing with us to come along. Details will follow in the new year.

VOCE – this is a group of people who are willing to help with the many tasks that keep our choir running smoothly. Our first meeting for the year will be held Wednesday Jan 11th10am. It will be a great opportunity to meet Natalie and to discuss ideas for the year. All are most welcome – the more people the better! Again, details will follow.

A happy Christmas holiday time to all.
