Wow, what a busy term this is turning out to be for Song Dynasty Music! We have not one but two new choirs that have started – Emilie’s DYNASTY VOICES which now has 14 members and is working hard on some really exciting repertoire, and then our vocal ensemble of 8 voices has also started. Both rehearse in Bangalow on Saturday afternoons at the All Soul’s Anglican Church.
Our kids choirs are gradually building, and Janet is doing some work at Mullumbimby Primary School with their 40 voice choir, helping out their choir director. We hope to find some new and amazing voices in that choir who might join the after school choirs in the Scout Hall.
Up in Palm Beach our Gorgeous Pop Choir now has 25 members, and they sound amazing. A really good, solid and confident sound. Jenny’s ukulele group is going really well, and they are tackling some great new songs, being challenged every week.
Back in the Byron Shire, our two community building choir, the Cuppa Tea Choir (Mullum) and Byron Community Singers are doing really well, and the Byron mob even sang out on the balcony last week to the people below, gracing them with a beautiful heartfelt version of Neil Young’s After the Goldrush.
We are all now madly preparing for our family and friend’s concert on Saturday 20 September at 4pm, in the Mullum Scout Hall. We have two special guests, local singer songwriters Kim Bamffy and Chris Mallory. Chris is also starting to work with our Boys Aloud choir, and it will be great for the boys to have a mentor in such an experienced and excellent musician.
