Rehearsal on Tuesday

Here is your reminder for our rehearsal this Tuesday, 19th March, 6.45pm for a 7pm start. So many great pieces of music with practice recordings for your part and if you do an internet search of title and arrangement, you can find some excellent YouTube recordings to watch and sing-a-long with!


The social concert event suggested for 16th March is CANCELLED or rather being rescheduled we hope for next term. Next rehearsal is 19th March followed by a Voce meeting where we can discuss upcoming events and ideas for a social get together.

Date Claimer and more

Saturday afternoon March 16th – mark the date in your calendar as Choirbolical is planning an Afternoon concert of all we’ve learnt so far and having some socializing time. More exciting details to follow and suggestions welcomed!

A thankyou and opportunity. Our wonderful Judy is retiring her much valued contribution to Choirbolical graphics and a big thankyou from all of us. Now the opportunity – if you have an interest or flair (it does not need to be professional!) for designing, we are looking for some new graphics for our choir badges and possibly for programs during the year.

In other news, Choirbolical was represented at a Toowoomba Community ARTS workshop facilitated by Caroline on the weekend. What a wonderful exchange of ideas with clear aspirations for facilitating more advocacy for choirs and other arts groups that offer so much to our community. Congratulations to Caroline on this initiative.

Rehearsal Reminder for this Tuesday

Looking forward to seeing you on 20th February 6.45pm for a 7pm start.

Just a gentle reminder to check the fees under Fees tab and to decide on your payments for 2024- whether they are per rehearsal, term or year.

There are now lots of music and audio files for current members under the Repertoire tab to download, print and practice their parts. If you do not have access please see Andrew at rehearsals.

VOCE – the group of volunteers who keep our choir running smoothly will regularly meet this year after choir rehearsals on the third week of the month. All are welcome to stay and attend. Note – minutes are now available under the new tab if you wish to read.

see you soon for some singing!

Message from Caroline…. gee I hope I did this right?

If you could have a copy of Cantate Hodie so we can start looking at it this week, if not, we will definitely have a look the following rehearsal.

See you Tuesday!
