360 Centre, Lower Plenty

On 16th October Victoria Welsh Choir presented Showtime and Singalong at the excellent 360 Centre in Lower Plenty in Melbourne's north-east.  An appreciative audience joined the choir for a trip down melody lane - tunes from Gilbert and Sullivan, Ivor Novello, Lerner & Loewe, Rodgers & Hammerstein through the 60s and up to Les Mis – all their favourites in one afternoon, with the opportunity to singalong to selected songs.

Soloists from all sections of our choir performed and special guest soprano Rhonda Yates showcased her talents in a number of popular solos and duets. Audience feedback included:
  • Lively tunes that are well known. Personality of the performers shine through. Lovely old hymns - e.g. Men of Harlech. Soloists added an interesting flavour. Great atmosphere and camaraderie.  Rhonda.
  • Very enjoyable, especially like the unaccompanied singing.
  • Very varied and interesting programme. the director and accompanist are both excellent. A very enjoyable afternoon.  Beryl.
  • Loved it! Great selection. Good to involve the audience. Obviously the choir is enjoying themselves, so we, the audience, do too.  Jenny.
  • Wonderful!! Lovely to see the joy these men are bringing to us as well as to themselves!! Bev!!
