Stormy weather today pulled Carols in The Park indoors this year to St David’s Church on Melville Rd. For our first performance we had prepared two songs; I’ll Fly Away and Noel (Gospel style of course). As a young choir there was much anticipation built towards this night and a real sense of coming together in the rehearsals leading up to it was apparent. There is something to be said for committing to something and following through and I think all of our choir members felt that tonight. The result is a feeling of reward, a sense of joy, and for me – brimming pride.
We must have looked classy in our green and black colour code because upon arrival we were invited to spend the whole evening on stage so that everybody could admire us. We sang all the classic carols accompanied the Moreland Brass Band and when it became our turn to perform our rehearsed tunes we sang loud and strong – any bystander would have thought we’d been doing it for years.
I would like to say a big THANK YOU again to every person that participated in Brunswick Community Gospel Choir this year. It has been a massive learning curve for me as a choir leader and without you all I would not be experiencing this great sense of satisfaction tonight. Thanks to Josh and Annika for all your encouragement and support and CONGRATULATIONS to the incredible singers who performed this evening. You are truely, totally ace.
Choir sessions resume Tuesdays in Feb 2011 with a new angle on our exploration of Gospel music and it’s impressions on Soul.
