    Voice Weavers Music Retreat at Bornhoffen 2018

    VOICE WEAVERS MUSIC RETREAT

    BORNHOFFEN LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT CENTRE

    2nd to 4th February 2018

    It’s five years now that Voice Weavers have started the season with a Music Retreat at the lovely Bornhoffen Centre. We use this get together to dust off the cobwebs and polish up some of the current songs, learn some new music, have workshops and do some group bonding. We invite interested singers to join us to see what we are all about, sing some songs and think about whether joining Voice Weavers A Cappella Choir might be a fun thing to do.

    The cost is $160 for two nights’ accommodation, all meals and a special workshop with David Sowden, vocal coach, on Sunday morning. There will be some Karaoke fun to be had on Saturday night as well. Check out the web link for Bornhoffen www.bornhoffenpcyc.org.au and there is more information about Voice Weavers on www.voiceweavers.com.au.

    Please contact Sophy Graham, our Treasurer, at treasurer@voiceweavers.com.au if you are interested in booking to come to Bornhoffen or Margaret Reichelt, our Membership Co-ordinator at join@voiceweavers.com.au if you would like some information on joining Voice Weavers.

    TO RUSSIA, WITH LOVE !
    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!!
