Orpheans, Friends and Supporters! Lend me your ears!
Christmas and New Year have come and gone. The rains are upon us in our sub-tropical paradise. Soon it will be Australia Day, the kids will all go back to school (thank goodness) and we all get down to the business of 2015.
The Orpheus Committee got going this week. Alison and Yvonne had already been at work - Alison selecting music for our first concert this year, and Yvonne locating and preparing it for us.
It will be in March again, on Sunday 22nd, and again at Woodgate - they liked it so much last year, and were such an appreciative audience, it seems a good idea to go back.
And it will be a Celtic Ceilidh.
Hoot! Mon, - brush off your kilts! Puff up your pipes! Lace up your leggings!
For a preview of some of the selections, check the "What we are working on" widget on the right hand side bar.
AND ALSO: to brush up on some of your celtic dancing moves, check out the Scottish and Irish Dancing videos. Very good for cardiac fitness, to be sure.
First practice - Monday 2nd February, 6.45 for 7.00pm at the Uniting Church Hall, Barolin Street
