Marrickville Sing for the joy of it

We have again been invited to take part in Sing for the joy of it at Marrickville Golf Club. We have taken part on two previous occasions and it was good to be part of an activity which involved other choirs, giving us a chance to hear others and to perform ourselves in front of an audience of family, friends and other choristers. It will also be a great opportunity to try out our repetoire for Ferragosto.

Date: Friday, August 18

Time: 7.30 pm

Place: Marrickville Golf Club. Wharf St, Marrickville.

Ferragosto

Our Canta con noi workshops have paid off and as a result we will be singing Me compare Giacometta and O sole mio in the Ferragosto Italian street festival.

Date: Sunday August 20

Time: 10.30 am

Place: Great North Rd, Five Dock.

Term 2 Workshops

We were generously funded by Canada Bay Council to hold two workshops which we did on consecutive Sundays in May. We called them Canta con noi (sing with us) because we concentrated on learning two Italian songs, Me compare Giacometta and O sole mio. Grateful thanks to one of our members, Tina, for her help with our Italian pronounciation. David, music teacher at Haberfield Public, who has had a long history of involvement in choirs both here and overseas, took the first workshop. We enjoyed his direction, sense of humour and encouragement.

Our Director, Kathryn, took the second workshop and we enjoyed improving our Italian and singing the rollicking Me compare Giacometta and the more soulful O sole mio. We hope we may be able to perform these songs at Ferragosto in August.

Sing for the joy of it

CBC Choir joined a number of other community choirs in Sing for the joy of it, a night of choral singing, at The Marrickville Golf Club on August 14, 2015. We look forward to singing with other choirs in front of an audience at the Golf Club.

We sang For the Joy of It in both 2013 and 2014 and enjoyed both evenings tremendously.
