What a wonderful Winter performance!

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!

Performing for the Rotary Club of Camberwell

Last Wednesday night, Cloud9 had the pleasure of performing for the Rotary Club of Camberwell. We sang most of the songs we will be performing at our upcoming Winter concert on June 27th. It was wonderful to be ready to perform so much of our Winter repertoire with three weeks of rehearsals still up our sleeves.

Aside from the music, we tried out a new performance look – autumnal-coloured scarves rather than our blue stoles. Everyone agreed our new look is a hit!

And our singing was extremely well received too. Well done ladies.

Songs of Love and Longing

Cloud9’s concert Songs of Love and Longing was an outstanding success.

The audience were treated to a mix of modern and classical songs from around the world on love and longing.

From “Till there was you” to ‘The Wedding Song’ there was something in the program for everyone to enjoy.

The highlight for many was the presentation in ‘forest formation’ of ‘Let it Go’ and “The Irish Blessing” to end the concert.

Choir members were thrilled with the comments after the concert which included ‘the best concert so far from Cloud9’ and ‘the clarity and sound from the choir was excellent’.

We look forward to seeing you at our next concert on Saturday the 29th of November!
