Here we are, back in to it with a vengeance. We have got the competition songs uploaded and are working well in most aspects of them. Well, that’s what the MD said the other night.
We started the year with a couple of losses due to the younger lads graduating high school and moving on, or commencing Year 12 and having more on their plate than they would ever have imagined.
Next weekend we willl be singing for the public at Summer Tunes. A venture of Toowoomba Region to bring a bit of joy to the public experiencing our beautiful parks. This is the third or fourth time we have participated and it is always great fun. With luck we could pick up a couple of new members. Hope springs eternal.
As related in our last item we have had major changes to our rehearsal venue. Ripped up the carpets, pulled out all the curtains over the glass wall and opened up the stage area. Looks great. But, pingy! We don’t know whether we sound great, or awesome. Mike L, our MD has had us go out and sing in the grassed courtyard to add a bit of reality to our singing and it surely brings one back to earth with a thud.
We sang at Oakey for Australia Day. A township about 20 kilometres west of here. One of our members is the Community Liasion Officer there and was the mover and shaker for the whole day. We had a beaut time and the Welcome To Country by a mature Aboriginal lady was most moving. She epitomised all that is great about her ancient race. Graceful, dignified and very welcoming. Pity a lot of people from other parts of Australia couldn’t have attended and heard her.
Next big thing? Sunshine Regionals. We’re now in the. “Let’s get this sucker sorted", phase.
Don’t forget. You can always catch up with HAH on Facebook, or via our web-site  haharmony.com.au
