During these sessions we were introduced to two new songs. Brian Greed used the Harmony session to start us on “The Black Hills of Dakota” which has got a great melody and an elevated soprano part. Margaret Merriman introduced us to “Speed Your Journey” which has got a lilting melody and is a great song. Kieran Smith had us singing some Australian songs which are always enjoyed by the group.
We thank Gwen Barnes for being so versatile in accompanying whatever is chosen by the leaders.
At Singing for Fun we welcomed back two members who had been away sick for several months. Gina Behrens had been away since last year, whilst Patsy Bollard has been recovering from a fall for two months. Great to see both Gina and Patsy back with us.
We also welcomed Brian Colman to the group. Brian has a history of being involved with musical productions, and has recently moved to Benalla. We hope you enjoy singing with our group Brian.
Thank you Tomoko Fujiie for the flute performance we were treated to during morning tea at Singing for Fun. The different abilities of people in this group which they are willing to share really adds to the enjoyment we all get from attending.
We will send an Email when the next Singing for Fun session is allowed. In the meantime, keep safe and we look forward to seeing you all in the near future.
