Grab a pen - here are some dates for your calendar:
A couple of these things you already know about if you are on Mal's email list for events but I thought I'd put them in to remind you -
AUGUST: Coming up at the Powerhouse is the Gypsy Jazz Festival - Thursday 26 to Saturday 28 August.
SEPTEMBER: Waulking The Tweed -- demonstration and workshop
When: 2 – 4pm, Sunday 26 September, 2010
Where: 30 McCord St , Gordon Park
NOVEMBER: Peer Sing Brisbane November 6 (at this point tentative because venue has not been booked yet. In the afternoon, same as last year.
SPOOKYMEN visit. Saturday November 13 at the Princess Theatre, November 14 somewhere in Maleny. We sing some of the main Spooky, Stephen Taberner's arrangements of songs.
The information about their Brisbane visit is not on their website yet, so I presume it is still being finalised. Check out youtube for some of their singing - it's just a joy.
Peer Sing Sunshine Coast; Sunday November 28 at the Coolum Civic Centre, 10.30 am to 2.30 pm. This is being organised by Yvonne from the Cool Harmonies singing group and she was inspired by the Peer Sing in Brisbane. We've been invited to participate and I'd love to do this if enough people are interested, even though it follows very quickly on from the one on Nov. 6.
DECEMBER: International Day of Disabilities is Friday December 3, and I am looking for ideas about how to give a performance opportunity for the Vision In Voice choir around this time - maybe on the 2nd, 3rd (in combo with Morningsong) or 4th December. If anyone has free time (Ha!) and would like to help out with this, please let me know.
December 4: tentative date for our Christmas Afternoon Tea and Sing. This could be on Saturday November 27 if the December date is not convenient for most.
Phew - November and December on the calendar is starting to look on the squishy side.
Leaving you with a song - this is Miriam Makeba and Nina Simone singing Thula Sizwe. Nina is the one with the very deep voice who comes in second.
