The Easter weekend saw adult and junior choirs from around Queensland converge on the beautifully refurbished Brisbane Town Hall to compete against each other. Year 5 student Cara Bales sings with Oriana Youth Choir on the coast and they were awarded ‘Highly Commended’ in both Youth Musical Theatre and Intermediate Choral Contest, competing against much older and larger choirs. Well done Cara and what a great experience.
In the adult competition, our Music Assistant Penny White sang with Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir and competed in five categories including Modern, Sacred and Madrigals. After a couple of days and nights of tough competition, Oriana was proud to again be named Grand Champion Choir for the third year in a row. (In sporting terms, it’s like winning the State of Origin!) Oriana are currently looking to recruit male Tenor voices, so if this is you and you’re over 16 please enquire with Mrs White. As further incentive, Oriana has some amazing travel opportunities coming up in the next 18 months too !
