Activities in 2018

The very popular Tuesday Morning Show has been running at the Perth Town Hall for many years, and on the 31st July the Choir was proud to be part of the entertainment program. It was before a large audience, thanks to advance publicity from the organisers and from U3A. The varied concert program, accompanied by the Choir’s Musical Director on the piano, received great applause from the audience. Individual members of the audience spoke to choir members after the concert and gave very complimentary feedback and praise. The City of Perth will make a donation to the choir as a financial contribution towards its running costs.

The Choir’s first concert for 2018 was before a large and appreciative audience at the Lake Gwelup Christian Church Centre on 29th May. The large auditorium was filled with Church members, residents of the nearby retirement facility and U3A members from various regions. The concert was met with enthusiastic applause from the audience, and the lavish morning tea that followed added to the enjoyment of all those involved.

Additional photos can be seen on the Lake Gwelup Christian Church’s website.

The Choir acknowledges the kind contribution made by the concert organisers to its running costs.
