Vocal Vibes have been busy during the Covid-19 experience.  Henrietta and her team have done a brilliant job of keeping the momentum of this vibrant chorus going.  Our Zoom meetings are the absolute highlight of our chorus week, and we have welcomed our newest member Katrina (who we look forward to meeting in person)!

There have been many highlights, with perhaps the most significant being our 10-Year anniversary on 14th July.   This was celebrated with a special afternoon event. Faye and Sam spent many hours compiling a variety of videos and photos to revisit the exciting journey of Vocal Vibes.

We dressed up in our first convention costume, complete with makeup and watched the videos of the four convention contests we have competed in. A fun, GoggleBox style commentary from some of the members ensured lots of laughs.   

We were joined by special presenter Brenda Smith, our founding choreographer as she and Lorraine, our founding director shared wonderful memories. Messages of congratulations were received from regional leaders Michelle Neller (SAA TC), Jenni Pyefinch (Director’s Co-ordinator), and Vicki Dwyer.  Gail Jencik (our last coach before lockdown) sent her video of congratulations and the dynamic Lynne Smith dropped into our Zoom celebrations to surprise us all. 

Members received a Vocal Vibes 10-year membership badge in the mail, and we hope it won’t be too long before we can celebrate face to face in true Vocal Vibes style.

Another major highlight was our Trivia Night, hosted by Kate & Andrew Hawkins.  Team “Let’s Get Quizzical” took out the honors but a fun night, filled with laughter, a baby photo guessing competition, and a test of our Barbershop/SAI knowledge/Vocal Vibes history was had by all.

The Management Team and members acknowledge the hard work of the 10-Year Anniversary Team.  They have had to change their plans to suit Covid 19 restrictions and we thank the team of Lorraine, Faye, Sam & Bridget, ably led by Annet, for bringing us such joy.

We are all looking forward to getting back to rehearsal and singing together once again!!!
