YOUNG members of the ‘Sing It’ choir recently brought a little joy to the residents and staff of the Queen Victoria Nursing Home in Lindisfarne when they made a special appearance on Thursday 30 July.
Choir director Louise Goich said the children put on “a most entertaining” concert and showed off all the vocal skills they had been learning over the past year.
“As a group, all members feel it is important to be involved in the community,” she said.
“They are more than happy to bring a smile to people’s faces with their upbeat arrangements of popular songs, as well as some classic hits.”
Designed for children aged eight years and older, the choir comprises young singers from a variety of schools in southern Tasmania, including Lindisfarne North Primary, Rose Bay High, Bellerive Primary and Ogilvie High.
Ms Goich said the choir met every week on a Thursday afternoon at the CWA Hall in Lindisfarne to “share their love of singing, learn different vocal techniques and gain confidence.”
“Breathing, harmonising and mash-ups are all practiced to popular, contemporary music,” she said.
The choir has gained experience in performing over the past 12-months with a concert for family and friends, as well as a fundraising performance at Baker’s Delight in Lindisfarne to help raise funds for breast cancer.
The choir also performed on Hobart’s Heart FM 107.3 for the Kim and Dave Show as part of Kim’s farewell on Parliament Lawns.
Sing It’s next performance will be at The Hive Market at Clarence PCYC on 20 September.
New choir members are always welcome.
