The rehearsal this week will start at 7pm with a virtual visit from Carla one of our previous choir directors who now lives and works in Sydney. She will be teaching one of our previous songs – A Million Nightingales – music will be supplied. This will be followed by our usual rehearsal with Morgan.
With just 12 weeks to our celebration weekend – start inviting friends, family and singers to join us on Sunday 23rd October for either the workshops or celebration Spring Sing concert at City Bowls Club. Don’t forget – past & present Choirbolical members are also invited to come to North Bowls Club for a sing on Saturday 22nd October and to bring family along to the barefoot bowls and dinner. Confirmation of the program and costs coming soon!
A regular rehearsal with Morgan will be held this Tuesday 19th July. 7.15pm for 7.30 start. While we all hope for the ongoing covid to disappear, it is sadly with us more than ever. To have the good fortune and fun of singing together, masks are most welcome and currently being encouraged in indoor settings. We will also continue to monitor CO2 levels at our rehearsals and of course encourage you to stay home if unwell listening to rehearsal tracks and music.
We have some wonderful rehearsals coming up in August & September with music to revisit from past directors ahead of our 21st Spring Sing weekend – put 22/23Oct on your calendar!
See you soon 🙂
This Tuesday is our regular choir rehearsal. 7.15 for 7.30pm. At 7.15pm we will start an early practice of Ave Verum the song choice from 2020 with Matt preparing for our Spring Sing .
Don’t forget there are wonderful tracks for Pemulwuy available. In other news, some of us were fit and able enough to make it to the Chilly Sing in Tenterfield and sing! We had an absolutely wonderful day and can highly recommend it for another year 🙂
see you Tuesday.
For those planning to go to Tenterfield on the weekend a short get together / practice at DeMolay is on this Tuesday28th at 5.30pm. Open at 5.15pm. 🙂
- For those planning to go to Big Chilly Sing we plan to meet this coming Sunday at 2pm in the Botanical Gardens (near the cannon) for a sing through songs Lovely Day and crowd pleaser – Wellerman. At this stage there is a group of a dozen planning to go, (provided all are well we may be able to perform!) Some people may be looking for a lift to travel to Tenterfield – can you help? Text Marion 0417703794 to confirm attendance if you haven’t already, so numbers can be confirmed with organisers.
- PEMULWAY practice tracks are now available under the Repertoire tab. Scroll down to find your track and SATB tracks kindly provided by Matt C. This song will again be on the rehearsal list next time – July 5th.
- Another opportunity to sing as a choir will be in Esk – Saturday July 16th 1.30-5.30pm at an ANCAR Musical Esk-apade. A decision will be made if we attend as a choir or as individuals after our next rehearsal.
Stay well and warm everyone!
This Tuesday will be a regular rehearsal 7.15 for 7.30 start. Last rehearsal, ‘Lovely Day’ was sounding incredible so time to polish it up along with singing other music we are working on.

If there is a group for the Chilly Sing on Sunday 3rd July we will arrange some extra practices that suit the group.

Firstly, it was great to have the first of our past musical directors Matt join us via video last rehearsal. As a follow up we will meet earlier again this coming week -7pm for a run through Ave Verum at 7.15pm.
This is a 5th Tuesday rehearsal so look forward to seeing you there with Morgan out the front! Last rehearsal we also had a great time working with Eli on a new song (available under repertoire tab). Here’s a YouTube to help with your home practice: https://youtu.be/Xa3ZuTUD7nI
The Big Chilly Sing is coming up after just 3 more rehearsals. Love to have as many Choirbolicals as we can along for a day of singing in Tenterfield Sunday July 3rd with James Cuskelly and Sandra Milliken 9.30 start 3pm concert. $20/$30. We won’t confirm our numbers until close to the date, but would like to have a rough idea at the next rehearsal so we can explore transport options for everyone. Let us know if you intend coming along 🙂
Can’t get to Tentefield – no worries. But do come to rehearsals to learn this jazzy piece we will also perform later in the year.
If you see this before our rehearsal (17/5) head to our Repertoire tab to find a new piece of music we are planning to sing at The Big Chilli Sing. Morgan says the 17pages in SAB are very simple!! There are some great Youtube clips so search and have a listen too.
Can’t print ? – a few copies for sharing will be available!
