End of year wrap up

Kathleen Ware's picture

As the end of year approaches Circular Keys Chorus has been kept busy with lots of activities. We’ve been practicing our repertoire of Christmas songs for the upcoming carolling performances between now and the end of the year.

In mid November we teamed up with Sydney Harmony Men’s Chorus to stage a show called ‘Broadway meets Pop’ at Hornsby RSL Club. Our audience numbered several hundred appreciative people, and we treated them to an evening of a capella singing that traversed the musical spectrum, from 1940s Broadway classics through to the latest techno-funk pop.

The program also included guest appearances from Vox Canvas and The Mixed Ensemble Project, as well as two quartets, Alouette and Bassically. And as a special feature, we had a delightful solo performance from Tony Barnard on his 27 string harp guitar.

Vicki Dwyer, musical director of CKC, Sydney Harmony and the Mixed Ensemble, was at her unflappable, energetic best. Diane Jenkins did a beautiful job leading CKC in an evocative rendition of All That Jazz. Ric Herbert held the program together with his introductions and entertaining patter. Our dedicated fund raising team organised a giant raffle with prizes going to twelve lucky audience members. The Show organising committee did everything else that goes into making these multi-faceted events appear so seamless. A big thinks to all those who came along to enjoy a wonderful night out.

Leading up to Christmas, we’ve got a busy schedule of performances on the agenda, including our regular engagements under the Christmas tree in Martin Place and a series of recitals in the Queen Victoria Building. We’re also very pleased to be performing at the NSW Governor’s Christmas Party this year, by invitation from Her Excellency the Honourable Margaret Beasley.

We hope all our readers have a harmonious Christmas break with family and friends, and step into the new year feeling refreshed, relaxed and ready for 2024.
