Melbourne turned on a beautiful day for us as we farewelled David Perry, our wonderful Choral Director of (almost) 13 years with a concert at the Fairfield Amphitheatre on 29th March. The mini-concert combined with the ARC Children’s and Youth Choirs was also a great opportunity for our newest choir members to perform at their first concert ever, and the regulars’ first concert since December 2019 after which COVID locked us down.
Good bye and good luck with your future endeavours David. You’ll be greatly missed! Hope to see you again when you visit Melbourne.
