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.

Cloud 9 looks forward to an exciting 2015

2014 was another Great Year for Cloud9

Cloud9 finished off its 2014 season with an end-of-year concert that moved away from our more traditional Christmas carol repertoire and introduced some new works spanning a range of styles. It was not without some Christmas reference though, with The Little Drummer Boy and five pieces from Benjamin Britten’s lovely Ceremony of Carols, including the glorious harp interlude. We were delighted to have Melina van Leeuwen, a very accomplished harpist, to accompany us for these beautiful works. Some lively gospels songs, some songs set to well-known tunes, a couple of our all-time favourites and two new additions to our repertoire, Faure’s Messe Basse and a piece by Brahms rounded out the program. It was a terrific ending to a great year.

Looking forward to 2015

2015 is already shaping up to be one of our best ever. Under the continued and inspiring leadership of our music director, Gloria Gamboz, we have started our weekly rehearsals with typical enthusiasm. We were very pleased to welcome the newcomers that joined us this year and are always keen to accept and welcome new members. One of the things current members most value about our choir is that we rehearse in a relaxed and happy atmosphere without compromising on our journey of musical improvement and excellence. We are actively seeking new members for 2015 and if you think that Cloud9 might be for you, check out our FAQ section and send us your details in our “How to join” page and we will get back  to you as soon as we can.

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!
