At Melbourne Contemporary Choir one of our core values is COMMUNITY – we are active in our community and seek opportunities to give something back. In our last blog we shared how the choir performed at the Wesson’s 40th Anniversary Fashion Show alongside Rhonda Burchmore to raise awareness and funds for a great cause, beyondblue.
We love to get involved in our local community and with our relocation to our new rehearsal venue in Macleod this week, MCCHOIR couldn’t pass up an opportunity to perform alongside Harrison Craig, from ‘The Voice’ TV program at the ‘Macleod Christmas Fair’. It was a sweltering hot day, but the choir put on our Christmas hats and pumped out some great carols set to contemporary arrangements as well as a fantastic version of ‘Joy To The World’ originally performed by Whitney Houston.
The choir had an information stall at the fair which was a great chance to talk to some locals who are interested in singing with the choir.
This week we have our first rehearsal at the Macleod Community Hall, 7 Birdwood Avenue and you’re invited to join us. We have a special VIP event planned which is an open event and would be a great opportunity to see MCCHOIR behind the scenes. There will be ample opportunity to sing, socialize and eat. We will be learning a brand new original song written just for MCCHOIR which we plan to record in the new year.
We also had a great time performing at the Bianca Fenn School of Music Christmas Event with the acting class and backing some great soloists from the school. The production was awesome and everyone had a great time.
Next week we will also be participating at the ‘Encompass Church’ Twilight Festival which is a FREE event for the whole family, where we will be Christmas Caroling and singing a beautiful song called ‘The Heart of Christmas’. We’re really passionate about giving back to our community and love partnering with charities and organisations that make a difference.
Something unique you may not know about MCCHOIR is that our ‘members only’ page has ‘demonstration guides’ for each individual part for all the songs we perform. So even if you don’t read music, you can learn your part with the click of a button. All these resources are provided to our members so that we can produce quality musical experiences which are enjoyed by a wide range of audiences. You can register your interest to join MCCHOIR for our 2016 season here.
