We are well into the New Year with a number of sing outs planned for February but it will be interesting to recall how we finished off 2019 with some great Christmas cheer in a number of venues. We had our usual shopping centre gigs but the most memorable was our set of Christmas songs at the Beewah carols by candlelight in front of 3000 people. Everybody got really into it and a number of very favourable comments were had from the audience.
lst in Homemaker Centre, we formed the School of Rock for the over 65’s. Please see the attached picture. Thanks to the School Locker Music Store for the guitars. We caused quite a stir in their shop window.

We are approaching 2020 with a new excitement as it’s our 30th Anniversary year.  We propose to hold a concert in August but we are also planning a formal dinner where we will invite all past and present members plus some VIP guests to help celebrate this achievement.

The Sunshine Statesmen are also hosting the Sunshine regional contest in May and are hoping for a great attendance from all the other choruses in the Sunshine region. We are hoping you all stay for the Free Bacon and Egg Roll brunch on Mooloolaba Spit Beach on Sunday morning before your drive home.
