Matamata Chronicle - - News - By ALI BRADY

The Mor­rinsville Se­nior Cit­i­zens Club trav­elled to Mata­mata on Thurs­day af­ter­noon to put on a mini-con­cert for the Mata­mata se­nior cit­i­zens.

The per­for­mance was part of the Mata­mata Se­nior Cit­i­zens Club an­nual gen­eral meet­ing.

The mini-con­cert in­cluded singing from a choir, po­etry read­ings, pi­ano so­los and a the­atri­cal per­for­mance.

The show got a very pos­i­tive re­sponse from the au­di­ence.

Mor­rinsville choir pro­ducer Eve ShawLynch said while they usu­ally re­hearsed their 30- minute per­for­mance for eight weeks, be­cause of health is­sues this year they were only able to re­hearse for five.

‘‘We’ve al­ready done two or three per­for­mances around se­nior cit­i­zens clubs and rest homes, and we’ve got an­other three com­ing up.’’

The club re­hearse three times a week for an hour and a-half at a time.
