Avenel passes on Christ­mas tra­di­tions

Euroa Gazette - - LETTERS TO THE EDITOR -

By DIANE GRANT

AVENEL Car­ols have been blessed with tal­ented mu­si­cians, or­gan­ists and singers for many years.

They all came to the fore on Sun­day as they spread the Christ­mas spirit at their an­nual Christ­mas sing along.

Deb Roper led the Car­ols evening’s pro­gram with Peter Smith, Helen Eas­ton and Bev Rat­ten mak­ing up the lead singing four­some.

The Avenel and District Singers, led by Lyn Brad­bury, per­formed two Aus­tralian Car­ols and the 15th Cen­tury Coventry carol. .

Cel­list Winifred Peart de­lighted the au­di­ence with her Christ­mas med­ley.

But the ones, who stole the show, were some very tal­ented de­light­ful chil­dren who took part in the show, play­ing mu­sic, drum­ming, singing, and read- ing the Nativity story from the an­i­mal’s point of view.

Do­nated gifts were laid near the Christ­mas tree and small manger set­ting for peo­ple in need.

The Avenel Singers gave a mu­si­cal ren­di­tion of the Ir­ish Bless­ing and the evening fin­ished with a happy ver­sion of Felice Navi­dad sung by the two singing groups and tal­ented band of mu­si­cians with the com­mu­nity join­ing in with gusto.

O COME ALL YE FAITH­FUL: The Avenel Car­ols’ singers, mu­si­cians and chil­dren on Sun­day at the Avenel Me­mo­rial Hall.
