23rd September Rehearsal – Cancelled

Hi All,

Due to the rather inclement weather and a new Covid-19 cluster identified in West Brisbane, we will cancel the rehearsal tomorrow (23rd September).

At this stage our next rehearsal will be the 13th September at the wonderful Linda’s house in Highfields. We will be in touch with further details closer to the date.

Stay safe and well.

News and rehearsals

Firstly, with sadness we will be farewelling Matt soon. With much soul searching he has made the decision to move to Brazil in September and we wish him all the happiness one can have in these strange and extraordinary times.

Astrid has kindly and generously offered to work with us after Matt leaves. So… zoom rehearsals in parts will resume and Astrid has plans fo try out a new videoing recording method with us. Details will be in a future post.

In the meantime- we have enjoyed three Park rehearsals and have two more planned at Laurel Bank Park – Hill Street side. It worked very well with our now ‘portable’ piano and tucked in out of the wind.
Dates: Sunday’s 16th and 23rd August. 3pm-4pm.
See current repertoire- we have been practicing all pieces except ‘Africa’.

Date claimer – Farewell to Matt & sing
Sunday September 13th. 3pm at Linda’s home in Highfields. Details will follow – thank-you to Linda for the kind offer to use her enormous outdoor area so we can safely socially distance.
We also have the offer of this space if the weather is raining for the next two rehearsals and the change will be with a notice posted on the website on Sunday morning.

See you soon.


Sunday Park rehearsal

This Sunday’s rehearsal (9/8) will be again in Laurel Bank Park but move to behind Laurel Bank Hall on the Hill Street side. Bring all current music for an enjoyable sing with Matt. 3pm start.
At 4pm a VOCE meeting will follow our sing to discuss where to next. There are no plans to return to our deMolay evening rehearsals in the near future – so all ideas and suggestions welcome.

cheers Marion

Hi All,

Thank you so much for your patience. Our wonderful video/sound enginerr Andrew Blenkinsop has completed the video. It has been uploaded to YouTube and now available to view and share to your heart’s content. It was a delight to do such a fun project with you all and I hope that you are happy with the results.

Please bring this piece of music along on Sunday (available in the repertoire section if you do not have it already) and we can finally do a LIVE version to hear it altogether and in-the-round.

Thanks once again for all your work. Feedback is always welcome so feel free to contact me at [email protected] to share what you thought of the experience!

Have a great week and lots of love to you all!
