Over 50’s choir helps locals find their voice
VOICES of the Whitsunday PCYC’s over 50’s choir, the Choral C Voices, delighted local residents who enjoyed listening to a range of new and classic hits during their recent live performance at the Proserpine Nursing Home.
Choral C Voices member Sue Gravelle said all nursing home residents enjoyed the performance and sang along to many of the songs.
“We work really hard at getting it right but also have a lot of fun and laughter along the way,” she said.
“It’s a very rewarding experience when we can finally showcase a new song to members of the community.”
Ms Gravelle said The Choral C Voices had many requests to sing at various community events.
Throughout the month of May, the choir is set to perform at the Candle Light Service followed by the Lions seniors Mother’s Day morning tea, Relay For Life and at the Lions Airlie Beach Community Markets on May 26.
“Our hard working musical director Steve is always working on the Choral C Voices repertoire, trying very hard to maintain a good section of as many musical genres as possible,” Ms Gravelle said.
The choir has 30 members who meet at the Whitsunday PCYC every Wednesday from 11.30am sharp.
There is a number of fun over 50’s classes available at the PCYC before the choir meets with a low cardio, low impact and low weight circuit training session from 9.30am followed by pilates at 10.15am.
New members are welcome to attend and join in the social singing with the choir every Wednesday.
