The choir celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2020. It was founded as The Gap and District Musical Society in 1970. Nerida Ellwood served as the choir’s first conductor. Over the years there have been quite a number of choir members, conductors and accompanists – not to mention audience members.
Due to COVID, planned celebrations have had to be deferred to 2021. Details will be provided as they become available.
To mark this milestone in the choir’s history, we have:
- compiled a list of past and present members
- created a short history/chronology of the choir
- put together a collection of photos and images drawn from the choir’s history (see below).
All of these are seen as “works in progress”, to be revised, corrected and updated. If you have a past or present connection with the choir, your input is invited. Notice that anyone has been left out? Got our facts wrong? Misspelt someone’s name? Have an amusing anecdote or fond memory to share? Contact us to update the list.
We hope you enjoy these mementos of times past:
