Novatones Harmony Chorus has once again been busy: meeting, rehearsing and performing at our new home base Club Charlestown, which is a large modern bowling club next to Charlestown Square, about 10km south of Newcastle City. This venue has proved popular with members as it provides underground parking, as well as a large separate room, which gives us great weekly-rehearsal space and an adjoining storage area for our risers. We have been made to feel ‘at home’ there, with staff very willing to co-operate with our requests. As well there are the usual large, modern club facilities within the same building. Enthusiasm remains high within the group, with much of this keenness due to our very-able and patient musical director: Peter Donald, who travels up from the Central Coast for rehearsals and performances.
Novatones donate most of the money we receive to charity and this year the organisers of Ronald McDonald House, which caters for the needs of very-sick children and their families at the John Hunter Hospital, were very pleased to receive a large donation from us.
