The 2014 QLD Music Eisteddfod was held over the Easter weekend at Lake Kawana Community Centre attracting youth and adult choirs and soloists from all over Queensland in a bid to be named the best in the State. GCCC had a small but impressive representation at this years competition.
Cara Bales in 4G is a member of an incredible group of young singers – Oriana Youth Choir – who competed in this event for the first time. Their singing was angelic and they were all beautifully groomed in their new uniforms. Although competing against Youth Choirs with much older members, they placed well in all their performances and according to many in the audience they will be the Youth Choir to beat as their voices develop and the children grow.
In the adult competition two members of our Music Department, Penny White and Ian Rix competed with the Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir and after two full days and nights of singing their hearts out in many different genre, the choir retained their status as QLD Grand Champions. They both feel very honoured and proud to be a part of such a wonderful community choir and to be able to share their love of music and experience with our College community.
If you or your child love singing and would be interested in joining either of these choirs, please contact Penny White on firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
