Congratulations to every Cloud9 member. Everyone agrees our Warm Up Your Winter concert on Saturday night was a wonderful success. We travelled around the world in song and I heard the words ‘magical’, ‘beautiful’, ‘stunning’ and many other compliments from the audience. Everyone agreed we were especially amazing when singing from memory. And we handled our Zulu, Greek, Serbian and Bulgarian beautifully. A number of people commented that ‘Let it Go’ and ‘The Irish Blessing’ sung in forest formation were tear-inducing.
Thanks to our announcers, Eileen, Christine, Desley and Jen. Thanks too to our soloist Cathie, and to our pop-up accompanist Marie.
Special thanks to Gail for her duo with Annabelle. And of course, to Jenny and Sue, and all their volunteers, and to all of you for making a memorable and exotic supper.
Thank you to Clare and Grant from My Little Tribe Photography for capturing our joy of singing in photos.
Thanks also to Bagryana Popov and Mary Riccioni for their cultural assistance at rehearsals, Max Fotheringham for recording the concert, Margaret and Kevin McGregor for supervising the door and Stuart Hair for assistance with sound.
Finally, our immense gratitude to Gloria for her determination to challenge us to produce this varied programme so successfully, and also to Annabelle who provides wonderful support always! It has been a wonderful semester.
Enjoy your two weeks off!
