|Eager Travelers for the Tour of Europe 2016|
With Many of the globetrotters still with visions of Leprechauns dancing in their heads, 28 members of the Esk Community Choir are once again about to launch into preparations for another European Tour in October, 2016, once more bringing the reputation of the Somerset Region and the music of this amazing Choir to places far, far away.
The coffee wasn't the only thing percolating at the Touring Choir's Meet and Greet on May 31st. Hosted by Alexis at her Coal Creek home, the serenity of the colourful surrounds belied the excitement bubbling over in anticipation of the Traveler's receiving their first glimpses into the repertoire for the tour along with a window into the journey the tourists will be taking.
The next 16 months will be full of the joys of perfecting a repertoire which will surely be for Alexis a labour of love, for her choir, a wonderful echo of their dedication and a showcase of some beautiful music reflecting amongst the diverse repertoire, the talents of inspiring Australian song writers.
With fund raising now a focus, the first off the mark will be Starlets and Sparkles , a concert filled with dazzling variety. Commencing at 2.30pm on Sunday the 19th July at the Somerset Civic Centre, the quality of the performances will resonate alongside some amazing jewellery pieces for sale creating an excitingly fresh dimension to Concerts on a Sunday afternoon.
