are a group of local enthusiasts who enjoy singing together and
have been performing for many years now. What
began as a bit of fun at a party long ago has become a local legend.
group has performed at many venues, ranging from charity events to
functions. They have joined in at places like "East Gippsland
Show" and more recently providing performances at the Wyanga Winery.
This last venue is no coincidence as the Choir is very
grateful for the
use of the pleasant winery surroundings for practice every
night from about 7:00pm to 9:00pm
. If you enjoy
come along! Notable this year are the performances given to support
local non-profit groups.
Tonight I heard about the death of Leonard Cohen. He was not my
favourite performer as he was the idol of the well do of my university
peers (c.1979) who enjoyed privileged upbringings and indulged
themselves in their own sophomoric sentimentality. However as a
member of our choir we have come to appreciate at least one of his
works, "Hallelujah", and in spite of all my attempts to simply list a
song with YouTube or Facebook, I offer it you now as a
raw un-pretentious, innocent offering, recorded 3 days before
I hope you
enjoy it, as we did singing it, thanks Leonard!!! Thanks Surf, your
backing was brilliant!
