Singers head to Brisbane

MARYBOROUGH Youth Choir members weren’t singing for their supper on Saturday night – but they were singing for a bus ticket to Brisbane.

The choir’s fundraising concert at Maryborough City Hall raised enough cash to take the 39 members to the big smoke in January to see the musical Wicked.

Musical director Tracy Wright has led the choir since it was formed in 2005.

“Our membership has slowly built up. We have singers aged from eight to 21,” she said.

“It was an excellent concert and we had good reviews from our audience.

“We sang songs from Glee and more traditional songs like Scarborough Fair.

“We have a junior and a senior choir.

“The junior choir sang a medley from California Dreaming and the seniors sang a medley from Les Miserables.

“We sing a variety of genres which is really good for our members because then they can see what they like and develop their own style.”

Auditions will be held in February for anyone wanting to join the choir.
