Myall U3A Choir band returns to singing action – news of the area


Choir members celebrate a return to sung action

Myall University of the Third Age (U3A) has had a very successful and well-supported choir for many years, but in March of last year the choir’s activities were suspended along with all other classes at U3A. due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

When Covid-19 regulations began to ease in July, U3A members were able to resume most of their activities, but group singing remained banned until March of this year.

Members are delighted to announce that the choir has now restarted, following guidelines from the NSW Department of Health.

The return to vocals came with some changes, said choir member Lee Clayton.

“We usually sing classic four part harmonies, but as our Music Director who leads this is currently not available, we now sing a wide variety of less formal modern music,” she said.

Choir member Roger Digby has assembled a collection of well-known modern songs that are a delight and sometimes a challenge to sing along to.

Lee Clayton will soon present some of his own songs which the choir will sing along with their keyboard.

“We call the new style Music for Pleasure and the choir members certainly seem to be enjoying it,” Lee said.

“We meet weekly at 2 pm every Wednesday in the main lobby of the Hawks Nest Community Center. “

Myall U3A continues to welcome new members.

“Come on and introduce yourself,” Lee said.

Annual Myall U3A membership for new members is $ 40 per year, which allows you to attend as many classes and presentations as you want.
