Sydney Sings: a note from Liz
July 24, 2013
Hey Sydney Singers,
So we are nearly there!
The transport and accommodation is all but organised (thank you all again for your generosity and patience!); the songs are all but in the bag – the choir is sounding great from where I stand!! (don’t worry, we still have plenty of time to sing them another million times, so you can have total fun on the day, and not have to think)… and… that’s it. we are ready. Melbourne, here we come!!
Our Imagine with Saltwater sounded just beautiful last night. Heartfelt and really special. I can’t describe how special this choir is to me. Listening to you all, I wish all music in the world were so heartfelt. We will work/play with this more over the next coming weeks, as we only just started it in this form, but already it is beautiful. Thank you all. Shannon and I feel it is the special choice for the WOBV concert. And what a voice on little Holly!!!
T-shirts… do we all have t-shirts? We’ll make sure everyone has one in coming weeks.
Also, if you are unable to come with us to Melbourne, fear not, there are PLENTY of other really cool gigs coming up for us here in Sydney, starting with Albert’s film funding night on Tuesday 29 October.
We’ll run this as an open soiree/rehearsal, and then show the film teaser at the end of the rehearsal with a projector – so PLEASE tell all your friends, all welcome.
Also, for members who were in the choir at the beginning (Dee!!), you are in the film… so please feel free to come along, as you feature in the film!
AND, not just the fundraiser night, we have a morning concert at the RPA hospital on Thursday 12th September, so please sign up for this; AND in October we will be singing at midday in MARTIN PLACE!! So plenty to sing!!
Thank you all for your enthusiasm, patience, understanding, compassion, humour, and most of all your beautiful voices!!!!!!!!
A little something from head office…
