Wollongong Mens Barbershop Chorus (WMBC), a Small Group with Vision to Go to High Places. With the sign up in July of our Music Director of Russell Bailey, the group has shown a new enthusiasm due to the Guidance and instructions of true Barbershop Style singing from a very experienced MD.
I write from the president (John Toolan) and from all the members to give a Big thank you to Russell and may 2019 be even bigger and better. Russell also organised with the help from John Toolan, myself Claudio Lodi and the Treasurer/Secretary Alex Edler, Contact from a Paul Meller from Hills Harmony and they have a plan in place to show barbershop music to a wider audience. So after some organisation we had eleven members of the Hills Harmony Chorus Visit the Wollongong Mens Barbershop Chorus and we had a informal Workshop with Russell running most of the show. The Workshop was conducted at the home of one of our members, John Toolan. He and his Wife gave up a section of their house enabling the Workshop to be a success. another big thanks to John and Rita from all Workshop attendees for the use of your space. The two Choruses, Hills Harmony and WMBC are now looking to have a joint concert in March 2019, Where WMBC will be utilizing this concert for recruitment. The MD Russel and all members of the WMBC would like to express a big thank you to Hills Harmony for driving down to Wollongong to participate in the workshop and for showing us a little of their MAGIC
TO ALL BARBERSHOPPERS AUSTRALIA WIDE, HAVE A MERRY CHRISTMAS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR. hope we see you in future years.
