Upcoming Music Making

During 2015 we began recording an album of the choral music of Ruth McCall.  It has been such a fun time working with her.  Not only is she a brilliant vocalist and pianist, but also a hilariously great person to be around.

Over the next few months, one of our projects is to complete this album – just a few more pieces to record.Ruth McCall Concert.jpg

During July we have two great events coming up.

The first is a visit from Canada by The Canadian Ambassador Choir.  We met this choir in Geneva in 2014.  We will be doing a few concerts in Sydney, and one in Newcastle with other local choirs.  It looks like being a great event.

A few weeks later in July the Grammy award winning Pacific Boychoir are joining us for a concert in Christ Church Cathedral.

We will keep you posted about these concerts.

2016 Update

It’s been quite some time since we have reported on this blog.  Most of our comings and goings go straight to Facebook.

It’s a 1/4 of the way through the year, and we have already performed several times. In January we had the honour of singing at one of our chorister’s wedding, and also at the funeral of one of our chorister’s relatives.  It is wonderful to share in both the happy and sad parts of life in song.SteveRosie-193

On 20th March we joined with The Newcastle University Choir, Hunter Singers, Christ Church Camerata and Concertante Ensemble for the glorious St Matthew Passion.  Singing such beautiful music, with a large combined choir and orchestra was a magnificent experience for us.  Thanks to Dr Christopher Allan for inviting us!

That’s the year so far.  Next week I’ll let you know what we are working on now….
