SCAL­ING THE HEIGHTS WITH NA­TIONAL CHOIR

Wanneroo Weekender - - News -

PERTH stu­dents Chloe Brown (13), of Iluka, and Ava Stu­art (12), of Car­ra­mar have been cho­sen to per­form with the Aus­tralian Girls Choir (AGC) on its na­tional tour from June 22 to July 6.

The pair will join 54 other cho­ris­ters aged 10 to 16 for con­certs in Can­berra, Nowra, the Blue Moun­tains, Wagga Wagga and Sydney.

High­lights will in­clude per­for­mances at the Aus­tralian War Me­mo­rial and Par­lia­ment House in Can­berra, a fea­ture con­cert at the Blue Moun­tains The­atre and a fi­nal ap­pear­ance at the Aus­tralian Mar­itime Mu­seum.

Chloe, who has been in the choir for three years, said she loved singing and per­form­ing and hav­ing the op­por­tu­nity to travel.

“I’m very ex­cited about the tour, meet­ing new peo­ple and per­form­ing at the dif­fer­ent venues,” she said.

Ava said she had been singing ever since she could speak, tak­ing part in many school per­for­mances and join­ing the AGC four years ago.

“I love that it’s like a big fam­ily,” she said.

“You cre­ate friend­ships with girls from all dif­fer­ent lev­els all over WA; I have made so many new friends over the last few years.”

She said she was “very hon­oured and priv­i­leged” to be cho­sen and was most look­ing for­ward to vis­it­ing Can­berra.

This will be the 41st tour for the AGC in its 34-year his­tory.

The choir is also well known for rep­re­sent­ing Qantas in its I Still Call Aus­tralia Home ad­ver­tis­ing cam­paigns.
