Morningsong's new term starts on Friday 28 September, and runs for ten weeks, until November 30. Everyone is welcome, so do mention it to anyone you know who needs a bit of singing! I have attached a flyer at the end of this email in case you would like to forward it to them.
There are some exciting events coming up this term: Saturday 3 November is Peer Sing, the annual get-together of Brisbane community choirs, at the West End State School. Each choir sings two of its songs to an audience comprised of all the other choirs, and we learn a piece on the spot and perform it together. Its a great chance to catch up with what other choirs are doing and meet people, and only costs a gold coin. More details as they come to hand (next week). I'm also creating some practice mp3s for our Peer Sing songs so you can practise in the car!
Saturday 24 November is our Morningsong Christmas Party at the Bulimba Senior Citizens' Hall. It will be a bring-a-plate feast, and a short concert of our favourite songs from this year, put on for our family and friends. I'll be emailing out an invitation with all the details early in the term so you can invite everyone you'd love to be there.
Saturday 1 December (I think) we have been invited to sing at the "turning on of the Christmas lights" at Bulimba Uniting Church, where we normally meet on Fridays. We will have one performance piece for this show (probably something yummy and African), and we'll learn a few of the standard Christmas carols too, which the Reverend Rod informs me will be sung with the church band and all the available voices, with drums, keyboard, guitar and possibly brass, as well as music kids from the local school..... this should be loads of fun!! And loud. Silent Night is definitely on the list.
See you in a week for a stimulating season of singing! John will be joining us for the first three weeks of the term before he heads off to Sydney, so we will have a sendoff for him on Friday 12 October. Its all happening!
