What sweeter music it was

Cloud9 is back and rehearsing towards our first concert in 2014. Our last concert of 2013, “What Sweeter Music” was a great success with over one hundred people attending!

Thanks to our wonderful piano accompanist Emily Chow who also performed a beautiful solo piece on the night. We would also like to thank Naomi Johnson,  Sarah Fitchett and Michael MacManus who performed on Flute/Recorder, Cello and Guitar alongside us.

A concert like this can’t go ahead without the generous help of all of the choir members and their families, both in the lead up to the concert and on the night, so we thank you all for making it possible.

Congratulations to Hilary on receiving the second Wiggs award for 2013. Hilary is always dedicated to the choir but showed her true talents by taking the choir for a rehearsal when we were short a conductor – Thanks Hilary, you did a great job!

What a Concert!

We would like to offer a big thank you to everyone who came to our second concert last Friday night. We were thrilled to sing and perform in front of such an encouraging audience. The choir can hardly believe how far we have progressed under the watchful eye of our brilliant conductor Tianyi Lu.  A lovely evening was had by all, with beautiful singing accompanied by lovely readings given by Karen, Dale, Marie, Jenny and Desley.

Free Concert! Hopkins Sinfonia – RACHMANINOFF AND SHOSTAKOVICH

There is just one week left to book tickets to the inaugural concert of the Hopkins Sinfonia featuring conductor Tianyi Lu and pianist Natasha Lin from the Melbourne Conservatorium.

We are especially excited to feature this concert as Tianyi Lu is the amazing conductor of Cloud9 Women’s Choir! This is a great opportunity to see and hear Tianyi’s work outside the choir.

“The Hopkins Sinfonia is a new orchestra for dedicated music students or young professionals who are looking for opportunities to play exciting works of the orchestral repertoire.  The programme is the enthralling Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini by Rachmaninoff and the intense Symphony No. 10 by Shostakovich”. You can find out more details about this and other concerts at their website Hopkins Sinfonia.

Thankyou!

Thanks to everyone who attended our first concert at North Balwyn Uniting Church last weekend. We were thrilled by the number of smiling faces in the audience! The choir had a wonderful time performing under the great leadership provided by our director Tianyi Lu.

Thanks again to our wonderful accompanist Emily Chow and our amazing violin soloists Kristian Kupsch and Sarah Coghlan. We would also like to thank Erica Tucceri and Tristan Cozens for their duet which was definitely a highlight, providing a beautiful counterpoint to the choral program.

The choir is proud of what they have achieved after only six months together and are excited about what will be possible for our next concert in 2013!
