To end a busy and wonderful year of singing activities, Raised Voices Community choir will be participating in the Tomerong Christmas Hall fundraising event on Friday, December 13.
The night will kick off from 6pm to 9pm and will have something for both children and parents to enjoy.
There will be a sausage sizzle, a visit from Santa, Christmas carols, a silent auction and live music.
Entry is $10 for adults, and children are free.
Tomerong Hall is the home base for Raised Voices Community choir, who attend rehearsals every Tuesday night from 7.30pm to 9.30pm during school term.
The choir has been active during 2019, starting with the Shoalhaven Eisteddfod, then See Change Festival, an event that included Raised Voices 25th Silver Anniversary celebration.
Soon after this successful concert the group became involved with a 'Make Music' event hosted by Shoalhaven Community Choir that saw local adult choirs and children singing together.
Raised Voices would like to encourage this getting together of community choirs in 2020, possibly working toward another event.
The group were also involved in two community daytime events in Huskisson, as well as the Shoalhaven River Festival.
Their current musical director, Olivia Corish is a voice and piano teacher educated both in Canberra and Germany who runs her own music studio and coaches the local youth ensemble, Impresaria.
She has also taught several primary school choirs. Together with Raised Voices members, Olivia selects a wide range of repertoire in a variety of styles from traditional folk song to well-known ballads to the Beatles and more.
Before the Tomerong Hall fundraiser, Raised Voices will be singing at the Carols by Candlelight in Sanctuary Point on December 7.
Rehearsals start again on Tuesday, February 4, 2020, with a 7.30pm start at Tomerong Hall.
