- Sorry everyone but it seems that we won’t have a credible choirbolical performance today with a very depleted male line due to illness and absence. Hope you get this notice with enough time to reorganise your day. Sorry once again.
Marion (and Chrissy who was to lead us)
Here is a glimpse of choirbolical’s Festival of Voices experience in Hobart 2017. Pop up performances at markets, concert appearance at Town Hall and hanging at the Singer’s lounge where choirbolical took to the stage AND Joe, Alison and Astrid gave blackboard performances to great applause; AND not forgetting a memorable rendition of Carole King’s Natural Woman led by Astrid.
A fabulous time was had by all 30+ of us. ( Not so fabulous was the flu many of our travellers came down with afterwards.) Hopefully most are on the mend for the resumption of rehearsals this week. See you there.

Astrid’s ‘500 miles’ blowing the audience away!
Feel free to come by for a ‘do-it-ourselves’ practice of our choir music this Sunday (18th and again on 25th ) at the Elvery’s crn Herbert and Mackenzie Streets – a little later than last message – 4pm to 5.30pm.
Also note that the VOCE minutes from this week are on the website to view. Points to note: extra REHEARSAL on the 27th June will be a CONCERT for friends and family held at the Credit Union Community Space down the lane from Walton’s Stores, so start inviting folk to come and hear us before some of us head off to Festival of Voices Hobart.. The Hobart schedule is also attached to the VOCE minutes for your interest.
For everyone keen to practice with others come along on Sunday 18th June & 25th June from 3.30 pm – corner of Herbert and Kitchener Streets. Everyone welcome to join in making our own music. We are aiming for a No Words practice!!
See you there. Marion.

This Saturday 20th May.
Meet: 9am at the Empire theatre for a warm up. (We hadn’t anticipated new markets to be nearby so think about parking).
Wear: Bright colours.
Singing: we will have a walk and sing at suitable spots around the city centre – depending on weather and other art events. See the list of songs in Astrid’s post below.
Finish and Lunch: finish around 11-11.30am followed by a lunch and some staged filming (this was to be at Japanese gardens usq with a picnic – but weather is not looking good so we will see what film director Chris suggests on the day)
Hope this works! If not google Moira Smiley – They’re Red Hot.
Good luck with actions – follow the sets of 8 – 2 sets of 7 actions plus a rest. See instructions on your music.
Need some extra practice? There are 2 practices on offer:
Tuesday 9th at 7pm – Andrew & Marion’s place crn Herbert and Kitchener – women may go next door to Ritamay’s if we have a big roll up. (Hall not available)
Thursday 11th at 7.15pm at deMolay (available)
These will be ‘do-it-ourselves’ practices of parts and a chance to be ready to impress Astrid the following Tuesday!!!
Hope to see you at one or both. In the meantime we have some words to learn and great practice tracks under repertoire.
