Wow! Singing at Church of All Nations for our Winter concert on June 22nd was an energising and uplifting experience. I overheard one chorister say “It was a triumph!” And the evening certainly had a wonderful sense of community, musical excellence, great leadership, sublime soloists and a full house. The standing ovation was a wonderful affirmation of all the time and energy that goes into creating a musical experience like that.
Warmest thanks go to Christine M Storey our Musical Director who very ably led Cloud9 Choir, as well as our guests: Dean Sky-Lucas on organ, The Crossing Machine String Quartet with Asher Reichman, Soprano Suzanne Shakespeare, and Mezzo Neda Bizarri.
Annabelle Clucas, our regular accompanist, joined us for the second half of the program and was brilliant as always. Particularly memorable was the ensemble with the violins for Elgar’s Fly Singing Bird and The Snow. Have a look at our program for details of the evening.
Lastly, thank you to our wonderful audience: your role completes the performance circle.
Cloud9’s next concert will be on December 7th 2019 so save the date. We’ll be back at North Balwyn Uniting Church and look forward to seeing you there and catching up over supper.
