In 1970, The Gap and District Musical Society was founded. In 2020, it achieved its 50th Anniversary under the name Senenata Singers Inc. Just as ideas to observe the occasion were being planned, COVID-19 arrived in Australia and it became necessary to defer any celebration until a gathering of past and present members became viable. So, here we are in 2021 and planning an actual Anniversary Celebration.
As COVID-19 restrictions still hold some control over group activities, Serenata Singers have decided to organise the occasion around a free afternoon concert. This concert will be held in the Auditorium of The Gap Uniting Church at 1050 Waterworks Road, The Gap and begin at 2:00pm on Saturday, 29 May 2021. Unfortunately, the attendees will need to be limited to 70. At this stage, seating will be socially distanced and refreshments arranged to be served following COVID guidelines.
The choir is rehearsing to present a happy celebratory event with some well-known musical pieces, instrumental guest soloists and some community singing. We are really looking forward to sharing this occasion with former members and friends. However, restricted numbers mean that the event will be invitation only, as we cannot guarantee everyone will be able to be included in the final restricted audience seating.
We are therefore calling for expressions of interest from former choir members, the families and friends of current and former choir members, and anyone who has had a connection with the choir over the years. If you are interested, please contact us on: firstname.lastname@example.org .
A chronology/history of the choir and photos/images from past years can be accessed elsewhere on this choir website.
