“We are hoping to have a few singing workshops and then put on a couple of Xmas concerts for the Retirement Villages in the Leeton and hopefully Narrandera areas.” said Alan Chesworth, one of the organisers.
Mrs Frances Tsoukalidas, an experienced choir conductor will lead four very informal, free, singing workshops/practices Each of the 1.5 hour sessions will be held in the Leeton Hydro Hotel starting in mid-October this year. Hot food supper platters will be available each practise night.
It is hoped that once the choir learns a few Christmas Carols and other songs, they will then be able to perform for the elderly residents of retirement homes in Leeton and Narrandera in November.
The project is being supported by Regional Arts NSW, Western Riverina Arts Inc and Leeton Shire Council. Further details regarding dates and times will be provided through local media, including The Irrigator and Narrandera Argus.
“At this stage we are just trying to get the word out about the workshops and see who is interested. So far we have around a dozen men interested in joining, but we would love to hear from more over the coming months,” said conductor Frances Tsoukalidas.
The choir is looking for any men interested in singing, to join the choir. No need for auditions and all ages very welcome!
Men of all ages and abilities are encouraged to join in for this good cause.
