The Wiggs Award!

Leave a comment

Jenny Brown had the pleasure of presenting the Wiggs Award just before our performance on Saturday night.

Here’s what Jenny had to say:

As Janice is away, (she’s probably just landed in Vancouver), it will be my pleasure to present the Wiggs Award.

As you know, the Wiggs Award is presented twice a year in honour of our patron Leigh Wigglesworth OAM who was the founder and Music Director,  for more than ten years, of Elation Women’s Choir, from which Cloud9 developed.

The Wiggs award is given to someone who has made a significant contribution to the spirit of Cloud9.

The recipient of the Wiggs award for this semester is Elly Johnson!

Elly is a relatively new member of Cloud9, but she certainly has made her mark.

 She not only has a lovely voice, but she is brave and determined, given that she does not read music.

She has charmed us with her smiling, cheerful presence.

And astonished us with her willingness to participate, even when dobbed in for a solo!

She brought even more colour and movement to our photo-shoot in the park by arriving on her wonderful bike.

 And finally, Elly can bring a smile to everyone, even when she is having a bad hair day.

 Congratulations to Elly from all of us!!

And thanks, as always, to My Little Tribe Photography for all our wonderful images.
