Choir weaves songs for regal duo
THE Tweed’s very own Voice Weavers a Cappella Choir are getting set for a performance of the most regal kind, with NSW Governor David Hurley and his wife to attend their rehearsal next week.
The choir will perform for the vice regal couple at Tweed Civic Centre Auditorium next Wednesday, June 20, as they prepare for the Festival of Voices in Hobart next month and their tour of Japan next year.
Voice Weavers secretary Barbara Lofts said the choir had sent some examples of their work to the couple, known to be good singers themselves, and who share a particular interest in choirs.
They will attend one of the choir’s regular rehearsals where they are expected to chat with choir members, listen to the choir perform songs from their repertoire and will be invited to join in and sing a couple of songs with members.
Winners of silver at the 2016 world Choir Games in Russia, Voice Weavers is an a Cappella choir based on the Southern Gold Coast and Northern NSW region. They sing a varied repertoire of musical genres in 4, 6 & 8 part harmony including pop, rock, jazz, choral, gospel, world music, musical theatre and Australian Folk.
The membership hails from a diverse range of backgrounds and ethnicities, with the youngest member aged 12 going up to the eldest contributor, aged 85.
The rehearsal is not open to the public.
