The Hibiscus Coast Singers say they are “knee deep” in rehearsals for their upcoming concert The Bee’s Knees.
Their July concerts are brought to you by the letter ‘B’; the choir will present a lively variety of music all written by composers whose name begins with that letter, spanning the centruries from Bach and Beethoven to Bernstein, the Beatles and the Bee Gees.
Michael Bell (another ‘B’!) is a choir and audience favourite. He not only accompanies the choir but has also written a new composition especially for the choir to the words of a William H Davies poem, The Moon. It is a spectacular and haunting piece of music to be premiered at these concerts.
Performing alongside the choir will also be local violinist Stanley Bolton. His solos include a piece composed by his daughter, Heather Bolton and he will be accompanied on the piano by his wife, Janet Bolton (more ‘Bs’).
The choir will take a short break following the concerts to return early August. If you are interested in singing with the Hibiscus Coast Singers, contact the choir at hbcsingers.com or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The Bees Knees concerts are on July 20 and 21 in Red Beach.
