Singing lifts the spirits of Fraser Coast Chorus ladies
JILL Rylatt has always been able to carry a melody but it was only when she retired she found time to raise her voice.
"Singing is a wonderful occupation, it lifts your spirits and has scientifically proven health benefits," she said.
The pitch perfect alto, who loves belting out Broadway tunes, has been a member of the Fraser Coast Chorus for about nine years.
While the group released a 14-track CD about a month ago, an updated repertoire will be performed at a concert at the end of this month.
Members for the group are always in demand and Jill thinks all ladies should sign up.
"Just about everyone can sing," she said.
"It's not compulsory to read music, but just as long as you can carry a tune."
The group meets every Monday from 6.30pm at the Hervey Bay Senior Citizens Hall.
Visit the Hall at 28 Totness St, Torquay.
