The Serenata Singers community group has again provided some much-valued celebration in song for a group of residents at AVEO Newmarket on Sunday 17 October.
The group, provide opportunities to perform short one hour concerts for community groups, particularly at Aged Care Facilities.
With the elderly being particularly vulnerable, numbers were limited to 15 at AVEO, but even then, the Singers were able to hit the note with an appreciative audience. With a combination of well know pieces (Fiddler on the Roof and Scarborough Fair), a couple of solos by their braver members, and of course a community sing-a-long, the audience very quickly joined in and clapped along.
In addition, as it was Breast Cancer Awareness Month, members wore pink ribbons while the musical director, Lois Cutmore, reminded the crowd with a bright pink wig (see photo). The group has more performances planned in the lead up to Christmas and they look forward to entertaining. Keep an eye out for them performing Christmas carols at Samford and The Gap Village.
