Happy New Year to you and the team at Sing Australia, I am sure it will be a wonderful year for all.
I realise the following is history, Christmas long gone but I feel it would be great to record details of the amazing Christmas Concert held by St George on Monday 17th December.
The St George fifth Christmas Concert was a roaring success. We had approx 260 family and friends in the audience and 76 singers. Unfortunately a number of singers were unwell but it was wonderful to see them in the audience supporting us and for them to experience the concert from the other side. It is hard to find words to express how incredibly proud we are of the group's performance.
The concert was a team effort and the members gave their very best. We were very diligent in watching Hayden which helped him to enhance our overall performance. It was a fantastic night; the repertoire worked really well, it was challenging, had variety and was interesting with a lot of new work included. The singing in parts was beautiful and the blokes really complimented the sops and altos. Songs included: Always There, World Anthem, Come Alive with Music, Let Go The Long White Sails, River Don’t Burn, Panis Angelicus, with our second half comprising nine Christmas songs, with the finale, our favourite - The Holy City.
Hayden Barrington's conducting was terrific and easy to follow and Joanna Li accompanied us brilliantly as usual.
It was also lovely to see a number of past members in the audience and we are confident of getting a couple of new members. Thank you to everyone who was able to assist with the multitude of tasks that made the night such a great success.
The whole concert was very professional and it was a great way to cap off a very successful year for St George. We were delighted with the number of compliments we received from members of the audience which included politicians, local business owners family and friends A wonderful way to showcase our work, thank you one and all St George.
