The year is drawing to a close and the usual round of carol singing and end of year parties are coming thick and fast. HAH had its Christmas break-up at the Lone Eagle Flying Club last weekend. One of our chorus members is also a stalwart member of that esteemed aviation group and we had a great time, despite the dust storm, the lightning, thunder, torrential rain and somewhat limited visibilty on the way there.
We held our Singing Restaurant in October and whilst everyone enjoyed themselves it wasn’t  the great fund raising vehicle we have had in the past. We are going to have a critical look at the coming year and see what we can do to reinvent it and a lot of other things within our organisation.
We have settled into our new home at Toowoomba Philharmonic complex and just as we worked out where everything was and how best to organise thing our landlords decided to rip up the stage, carpet, etc in our rehearsal rooms and completely refurbish them. I anticipate an interesting start to 2017 when we reconvene.
The chorus has sung at the Toowoomba Regional Council’s, Turning on the Christmas Lights, the Toowoomba Hospice carols evening and soon the Lions Christmas lights and we had a delightful hour or so singing for patients and nursing staff at St Vincents Hospital carols evening. It’s what make s Christmas, Christmas.
We have had a change of some of our executive and the newly crowned Music VP has already got our homework over the Christmas break worked out. He also said we will have our entire program for 2017 up and runnning by early January. Talk about cracking the whip.
To all our fellow Barbershoppers – A Merry and Bright Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year. See you at PanPacs!
Don’t forget. You can always catch up with HAH on Facebook, or via our web-site  haharmony.com.au
