At last we can sing maskless
Saint David’s Day
The traditional celebration of songs, poems and jokes for the patron saint of Wales.
The first public outing by the choir since 2020.
The choir began the year with a concert for the combined probus clubs surrounding Gladesville – Ryde and Drummoyne. We were so excited we forgot to take photos. So you have to trust me, it was a great success. The new choristers fitted in well and despite losing some of the choir to Covid the show went on.
Our second concert was on the central coast at the Brentwood Village, Kincumber.
Post-covid the choir is smaller and is aiming to stabilise at 25 to 30 singers.
The new musical director (Bronwyn) is managing the song selection to suit our numbers.
The result is a well balanced sound. The audience at Brentwood (200+) were enthusiastic
and we will return to this venue in 2023.
The choir is again invited to provide choral support at the official ceremony in Hyde Park.
We are seated next to the NSW Police Band. The new look programme for the ceremony worked well.
It is always a colourful and moving ceremony. The weather was perfect for once and you can tell by the smiling faces that it was fun.
The choir performed a one hour programme in the rotunda at Menai Park in Menai as part of the Celtic Festival. Singing outdoors is a challenge but the rotunda roof provided enough natural amplification to make a good sound. A pleasant outing and hopefully next year the weather will be kinder and the event will attract a larger crowd,
