On June 22nd 2020 we resumed rehearsals, and conducted an Annual General Meeting. We had to cancel the June Concert. We’re not certain about which of the remaining activities, ie Nursing home visits in August, Bunnings Sausage Sizzle and the Mundaring Markets in October, that we will be able to do.
Rough Start in 2020
Due to COVID19 restrictions, we have to abandon Choir practice from March, and subsequently cancelled the concert in June.
Here We Go in 2019
Rehearsals for our concert in May are in full swing, and the programme is an interesting mix of folk and traditional music. We have a full year ahead of us, with two main concerts, performances at nursing homes and markets, and a super sausage sizzle day at Bunnings. Our two concerts in 2019 are on 26th May and 1st December, so mark your calendar and keep your eye on this website or our facebook page for details of how to buy tickets.
It’s All Over Bar the Singing
That’s 2018 done, and we’ve begun looking at the music for our first 2019 concert this year. The concert is themed around folk music, and if you’re expecting to see us languishing in a coffee lounge with long hair and a cheap guitar, you might be in for a surprise. We don’t have a cheap guitar! What we do have is a mix of traditional and new music, some sung in the old, traditional way, and some with a modern treatment. So make sure you set aside Sunday 25th May to attend our concert.
Singing up a Storm!
On Sunday the 14th of October the Hills Choir braved the stormy weather and sang at the Mundaring Markets. It was cold and rainy however the beautiful singing voices of the members brought sunshine into the afternoon .
Christmas in July at Darlington 28 July 2017
Members of the Choir sang a couple of brackets of Christmas themed songs, including some traditional carols and some almost reverent parodies on Christmas season songs.
The Choir members sang for their supper, which was a traditional Christmas dinner. The dinner was a fund raiser for the Darlington Anglican Church.
