After a very exciting and successful 2019 with the Choir celebrating its 50th anniversary by performing Carl Jenkins’ Adiemus accompanied by the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra in HOTA, 2020 started as usual; then came the sudden halt courtesy of COVID. Since March 2020 the Choir has been in recess and members have been most unhappy at not being able to sing.
However, COVID has given us the opportunity to reassess our direction. As a result, the Choir will be resuming rehearsals at 7:00pm on the 20th January 2021 at a new venue: the Gold Coast Youth Orchestra Centre at Ashmore. We hope this will attract new members as it is more accessible than its previous location. The Centre has beautiful acoustics and because of its space and high ceiling, will let us rehearse in a COVID-safe manner.
The Choir is also forming a smaller auditioned ensemble to provide further opportunities for musically adept performers, as well as acting as a nucleus for the choir to increase the musicianship and performance adaptability of the group.
Another exciting development is the possibility of performing with the Gold Coast Philharmonic Orchestra, and discussions are under way.
If you love to sing and think you may like to join, come along and meet us!
