As this is the last Newsletter for the year we would like to thank our three talented conductors Faith Hicks, Brian Greed and Margaret Merriman who have encouraged and improved the group throughout the year. We thank them for their time and expertise. We would also like to thank Gwen Barnes for her assistance on the piano during the year. It is a big job to learn and play so many songs so regularly for the group.
Also thank you to Ian Grace for opening up every Thursday that we meet, arranging the chairs, and also for closing up at the end of each session. Morning tea is an important social part of our group and thank you to Trish Roe for overseeing the morning tea and coffee throughout the year – we regularly have 30 people at our sessions and Trish and her team always have a smile and know who likes what.
Lastly but not least. What a performance we gave at Meet and Mingle on Wednesday 21 November for other members of U3A and the public. Our group really do seem able to lift themselves when singing out with excellent diction and expression added to most songs. The three conductors are to be congratulated for putting together a varied program of songs, and the performance was excellent. Well done everyone.
