Exciting times ahead for Blenders quartet, Sundays Best who head off to participate in the BHS Collegiate quartet competition in Salt Lake City, USA in early July. We would like to wish Dean, Ryan, Alex and Sam all the very best. We at The Blenders are very proud of them and look forward to hearing about their experience and them sharing their gained knowledge when they return home. The have worked very hard and deserve the opportunity to perform on the ‘big’ stage.

This last month has been very busy for our chorus. We had a Saturday double header, with performances at a multi-cultural festival in Broad Water Parklands. As soon as we had finished that we had to jump in our cars and race over to Labrador Community Centre for a citizenship ceremony. All in all, a very busy day.

It was also our privilege to sing at a Gold Coast City Council Citizenship ceremony at the Home of the Arts, (HOTA) earlier in the month. On top of this we performed a flash mob at the Arundel Tavern for a very nice wine tasting event. Great fun was had by all and this performance also resulted in another gig to be held in August. The wine wasn’t too bad either.

SingGC has just concluded with a concert featuring our sister chorus, Coastal Charisma and the registrants from SingGC. The concert gave the registrants the opportunity to perform to an audience and put their new found skills into practice. The registrants came together 4 weeks previously, with each chorus learning two songs and one combined song.

Our next major event is Voices in Paradise. We are expecting over 100 youth members to register for this event. Blindside and Velvetones are the guest educators. The participants couldn’t be in better hands.
