Musical afternoon at East Geelong

from w
This afternoon we tried something different at East Geelong church - a musical program then a nice afternoon tea. Using only members from our church. Just an hour of community singing, some songs with banjo mandolin and an enthusiastic drummer - not one of the kids this time but one of our seniors. Items from our Tongan family - a capella singing as well as a performance with a cello, violin and trumpet. It went well and was a good mix of musical items and interaction with the audience through the community singing. I don't like passive audience events but prefer some kind of input from all of the people. Next year our Worship team will probably plan for about eight similar events and invite Geelong choirs, and maybe poets? Our next community event will be Carols in the afternoon from 4 p.m. onward to be followed by a sausage sizzle. This will be on December 22nd.
