Presidents Report July 2018

The Choir.

Our choir has been a vital part of the club for a very long time, first as the Rembrandt Male Choir and the last five years as The Great Western Male Choir.   It is with some sadness that I have to report to you that on Friday the 22 of June the decision was made, that due to inefficient membership the choir was not able to perform any more to the expected standard.

The choir has been an ambassador for our club all those years. The Rembrandt Choir together with the Sydney Male Choir were the inaugural members of the N.S.W. Branch of the Australian Male Choir Association and as such was involved with organizing concerts in the Sydney Opera House and Town Hall. And again later the choir was also involved at executive level with the Male Choir Association of Australia.

Through the years we have performed at the Dutch Queens visit in 1988, the Tall Ships during the Bicentennial celebrations, concerts in Melbourne, Canberra, Orange, Forbes, Fiji, an numerous other venues.

After singing in choirs for more than sixty years, 33 of them on Friday nights, I sure will miss my choir, lucky I have got a lifelong of happy memories.

J. Joosten. President
