The concert and dinner -Christmas in July
4th July 2022
Second term was very difficult for VEV due to peak Covid infections in Western Australia and Covid isolation restrictions. Typical rehearsals had only half of the choir members attending, so the decision was made reluctantly to cancel the show, but instead do a single performance to family and friends.
The concert was assembled with half of the choir members on Saturday afternoon by director Megan Rundle , music director Jackson Griggs and executive director Maggie Wilde West, and performed on Sunday.
The concert was excellent, a huge success enjoyed by everyone, and followed by an equally impressive "Christmas in July" dinner. Huge thanks to everyone involved!
The concert went for 90 minutes straight, with 11 songs by the choir and 5 solos/duos plus three sing along Christmas songs, finishing with a rousing version of Coldplay's "Viva la Vida" and an encore of Elton John's "Yellow brick road". Special thanks to our choir soloists Kim and John, and to our duo Stella and TIna.
