Although we are well and truly in the holiday season, this has not stopped us from keeping busy.

After the BHA National Convention, we sadly said farewell to our Musical Director extraordinaire Jonathan Bligh as he ventures off to do some study overseas. We wish him nothing but the best for him and can’t wait for him to join us soon. In the meantime, we are delighted to have one of our own members John Khammash step in as our Acting Musical Director, and can’t wait to continue to develop our skills with him.

Over the past month we have been busking in the Adelaide Central Markets spreading some Christmas joy, as well as preparing for our first ever Christmas Concert this Saturday (15th December). We are also fortunate to have our current Pan-Pacific Youth Champions and brothers from Paragon join us as part of this concert.

We’ve also started preparations for our 2019 Fringe Show “Choir Boys” as well as being a part of a production in the Adelaide Festival. Despite the fact that we get a 2 week break over the Christmas period, we know that these next 2 months will consist of a lot of singing, and a lot of fun doing it.

We can’t wait to see what the new year will bring, as well as hear what you will be up to throughout 2019.

From all of us at Festival Statesmen, we hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Kind regards,
Aidan Foyel
