FROM JULIE 


WELCOME TO MARCH

The year is well and truly underway and thank you to our choristers, conductors and volunteer teams for their commitment as we get ready for a number of events. 

March will be a huge month and we hope to see you at some of our concerts.

These will include our Birralee Singers and Blokes performing at the Combined Choral Concert at Marist College Ashgrove on Thursday 15 March and our 2018 Anzac Day Commemoration Choir's Dedication Service & Concert, held at Brisbane Grammar School on Sunday 18 March. We've detailed other concerts within this Birralee Billboard.  

Our Brisbane Birralee Voices are getting ready for their annual camp at Twin Waters Resort this weekend. We wish their conductor Jenny Moon and the ensemble's managers and choristers all the best for a wonderful weekend of music making. 

We have a few places left in our Birralee Piccolos, Kids and Singers choirs, particularly in our choirs that rehearse on Saturdays at Eagle Junction State School, with some limited places in our other ensembles. Feel free to share this newsletter if you know someone who'd like to join us.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
