The Hills are alive with the sound of a Choir Festival in aid of Camp Quality.
Hosted by Castle Hill based choir, Ad Musicam, the first of it’s kind music festival for the Hills District will feature six very individual choirs.
Member of Ad Musicam and one of the three coordinators of the event Christine Henderson said she wanted a variety of choirs to make the event interesting and fun.
“I picked out the choirs – I wanted a full range of different styles,” she said.
“There will be a diversity of choir styles, with something to suit every taste.
“There will be a ladies choir, a men’s choir, we will be the mixed choir and then a junior and senior school choir.”
Pacific Hills Christian School will host the event on Sunday, October 30 in their school’s auditorium.
“It is a beautiful set up – a purpose built auditorium with 450 seats,” Mrs Henderson said.
From 3pm, the festival will celebrate the joy of music, whilst also being a fundraiser for children living with cancer.
Along with host Ad Musicam, participating choirs include the Rock ‘n’ Soul Choir, Spirit of Sydney Chorus, Hills Harmony Chorus, Kellyville Ridge Public School Choir and Mount Saint Benedict College Choir.
Each of the six choirs will have 10 minutes on stage each, singing about 3 songs.
“At the end, all the choirs will come on stage for a big finale,” Mrs Henderson said.
The afternoon will be compered by radio personality, Tracey Steyn.
Mrs Henderson hopes to raise about $10 000 on the day to help children living with cancer.
“If we sell all the seats, receive some donations and have some really good raffle prizes we should generate $10 000,” she said.
“It’s taken a long time to organise but I would love to make it an annual or bi-annual event.”
Camp Quality is a charity whose purpose is to create a better life for every child living with cancer in Australia.
