What was originally a ten week project to bring together a choir for the Sounds Live Festival has now evolved into an ongoing community choir. The enthusiasm and commitment from those who experienced the choir was overwhelmingly positive and our wonderful choir leader Tracey Callinan has agreed to stay with us. We performed at the Womindra World Music Festival in Canowindra to a wonderfully warm audience, the NAIDOC celebrations on a beautiful Spring day in the park, the Mayoral Reception for UN Day in Council Chambers, and the International Friendship Group Spring Party. Along the way we've learned wonderful songs, formed friendships, socialised together and ate some delicious food. In November the Sounds Live Choir was named a finalist in the Community Broadcasting Association of Australia (CBAA) annual radio awards 'The Voxies'. Sounds Live Choir was recognised in the 'Excellence in Community Participation' category.
