Swan Har­mony Sings

Midland Reporter - - Front Page -

SONGS from across the globe will be per­formed when the Swan Har­mony Singers take to the stage in Swan View later this month.

Co-or­di­na­tor Mau­reen de la Harpe said songs from Ire­land, Scot­land, Aus­tralia, the United States and Nor­way would be fea­tured.

“The ever pop­u­lar Cal­i­for­nia Dreamin’ was in­spired by a dream of balmy LA weather dur­ing a New York win­ter

while Scot­land gives us a new ver­sion of the folk num­ber The Skye Boat Song, cur­rently en­joy­ing new pop­u­lar­ity as the theme song for the TV se­ries Out­lander,” she said.

“The Fields of Athenry is the much-loved an­them of the Ir­ish rugby team, while The Green Hills of Al­bany and Nyun­gar Al­leluia both have an Aus­tralian theme.

Mrs de la Harpe said with Christ­mas ahead, sea­sonal num­bers, in­clud­ing John Rut­ter’s An­gels’ Carol, would con­clude the per­for­mance.
