2014 was another Great Year for Cloud9
Cloud9 finished off its 2014 season with an end-of-year concert that moved away from our more traditional Christmas carol repertoire and introduced some new works spanning a range of styles. It was not without some Christmas reference though, with The Little Drummer Boy and five pieces from Benjamin Britten’s lovely Ceremony of Carols, including the glorious harp interlude. We were delighted to have Melina van Leeuwen, a very accomplished harpist, to accompany us for these beautiful works. Some lively gospels songs, some songs set to well-known tunes, a couple of our all-time favourites and two new additions to our repertoire, Faure’s Messe Basse and a piece by Brahms rounded out the program. It was a terrific ending to a great year.

Looking forward to 2015
2015 is already shaping up to be one of our best ever. Under the continued and inspiring leadership of our music director, Gloria Gamboz, we have started our weekly rehearsals with typical enthusiasm. We were very pleased to welcome the newcomers that joined us this year and are always keen to accept and welcome new members. One of the things current members most value about our choir is that we rehearse in a relaxed and happy atmosphere without compromising on our journey of musical improvement and excellence. We are actively seeking new members for 2015 and if you think that Cloud9 might be for you, check out our FAQ section and send us your details in our “How to join” page and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
