The Civic Centre is having some electrical maintenance done this week. Add that to school holidays and being the rehearsal after the annual show it has been mutually decided to go and have dinner instead of rehearsing. Hooray! We are meeting at the Little Malaya Restaurant on Bay St Tweed Heads at 6:30pm
|After nearly six months Voice Weavers A Cappella Choir is returning to the Tweed Heads Civic Centre for rehearsals. We are thankful that the Uniting Church Hall was available for us to use while renovations to the library prevented our use of the auditorium. BUT WE ARE BACK! We gather from 6.30 pm for a 7.00 pm start. Any interested singers are welcome to come along and have a look and see if you would enjoy our music. If you would like more information please contact Mikako on|
0419 790 855.
Due to never-ending renovations at the Civic Centre, Voice Weavers rehearsals have a temporary rehearsal venue at the Uniting Church Hall on the corner of Lanham and McLean Streets, Coolangatta. See you there!
Voice Weavers A Cappella Choir is seeking more men singers to beef up the bottom
end of our harmony.
Many thanks to Helloworld Surfers Paradise for their very generous donation of First Prize for our raffle.
Voice Weavers on the world stage
Voice Weavers Choir will soon be appearing on the world stage – literally – through our participation in the World Choir Games in Sochi, Russia, in July. Billed as the largest choir competition in the world, it gives us the amazing opportunity of seeing the best choirs from around the world while testing our own skills. The 2014 games – held in Riga, Latvia – saw 27,000 people from 73 countries competing at the 11-day event!
At Sochi, we'll be competing in the Scenic Pop/Show Choir section and the Folklore A Cappella section of the Open Competition. We'll also appear in a Friendship Concert performance and with the Festival Stage Choir for the Great Celebration concert. We've been told by the organisers, Interkultur, that we're the only Australian choir to have registered for the event – so we're representing Australia!!
On the afternoon of Sunday 29 May from 2 pm at the Tweed Heads Civic Centre, cnr Wharf Street and Brett Street, Tweed Heads, we'll be holding a fundraising concert to show off everything we've learnt and to raise funds to help offset the high costs of travelling to Russia. Entry is by donation and we will also have lucky door prizes, silent auction and a fabulous raffle. We'd love your support, so put the date in your diary!!
|It's show time! |
