Rostrevor Community Choir has a new name ... Singmarra .... what do you think?
I suppose we could guess that it means Songs of the Sea, or Sing about the Sea - but actually it's just a play on words from a beautiful Aboriginal song called Lingmarra that Therese Virtue at the Boîte World Music Cafe in Melbourne taught me when I visited earlier this year. Her choirs all sing it and it's a sort of non specific native language that means Welcome Everybody
Rostrevor Community Choir has been going now in various guises for nearly 6 years and for most of that time I've been thinking "we should have a name!, we should have a name!" So finally we have.
The artwork is an original painting by one of our members, Susan Farrell, who is also chair of the local art group. I love the lightness of her paintings. You can see more of her work here
We meet on Wednesday nights in Rostrevor, so if you happen to be in the area on holiday and fancy joining us for a sing for an evening, you'd be more than welcome. Membership is closed now until after Christmas but we'll open it again for a few weeks to take on the New Year's Resolution singers.
