Registrations for Moorambilla 12 Sept 2004
- Dear all
Attached is the registration form for this year's Moorambilla. My apologies
to those on multiple lists who may receive this email more than once. Please
forward this email on to as many people as you can think of who may wish to
join the Moorambilla massed choir.
For those who are hearing about Moorambilla for the first time, the
inaugural Moorambilla concert was held in 2003, a culmination of the vision
and determination of Michelle Leonard to bring singers from all walks of
life together to celebrate new and innovative music.
Michelle is a professional musician and a gifted conductor. Her experience
is vast and includes, to name just a few, Sydney Children's Choir, Baby
proms, North Sydney Boys High choir, Newtown Performing Arts High School
choir and various orchestras including the Conservatorium of music.

choir performing new pieces by young and up-coming composers. These pieces
were specially commissioned for Moorambilla and the massed choir
participated in the creation and helped shape the compositions into their
A children's choir joined the adults for selected pieces, and Michelle's two
choirs, Choralation (who hosted the event) and Leichhardt Espresso Chorus
Moorambilla also travelled to the country, with a concert to celebrate the
final weekend of the Mudgee Wine Festival.
In 2004, Moorambilla is shaping up to be an exciting and innovative event
once again, with new pieces specially commissioned for the Year of the Built
Environment. The composition 'Moorambilla' commissioned for Moorambilla 2003
will also be performed again, as well as other pieces providing a wide
variety of styles.
There will be five workshops prior to the Sydney Moorambilla concert. These
will be held on Sunday afternoons and hosted by the very friendly and
fun-loving Choralation. The dates, times, costs etc are in the attached
There is no audition required!
If you would like to experience something new and different, this is the
concert for you! If you cannot find the time to sing regularly in a choir,
you might be able to find time for 5 Sunday afternoons in the 3 months from
June to September.
