Singing it out at Channon
HOT on the heels of its recent placing in the Queensland Eisteddfod, the Granite Belt Choir is keen to keep the entertainment coming for Stanthorpe music lovers.
The recital, to be presented on Sunday, June 23 is entitled Peace and Harmony and includes some songs which are well known and others which may be new to many. As the title suggests, there is a recurring element of peace and harmony, although there is a short bracket which includes a bit of frivolity.
Robert and Peggy Channon, long-standing members of the choir, have offered the use of Swigmore Hall as the venue for the recital. The acoustic is wonderful for voices and instruments alike, so the offer has gratefully been accepted. The couple admit there might even be an element of self-interest involved, as Peggy is also the accompanist for the choir so the performance is literally in her backyard.
Entry is by donation, so that leaves plenty of room in the wallet for making an afternoon of it and including lunch at the Singing Lake Cafe and the odd glass of wine or two.
The recital commences at 2pm.
