Another convention has come and gone – hugely rewarding fun despite the fact that we weren’t competing this year. Possibly it was even better for that reason.
Off Beat quartet competed and although not highly placed, were fabulous. Once again, they were the best dressed – very stylish in a little pink and grey ‘ensemble’. They sang really well. We were really proud of them. Most of us would give our eye teeth to be up there with them and admire their commitment, courage and talent.
Convention is always a great time for catching up with friends from other choruses. We particularly enjoyed reassuring ourselves that our Christchurch friends were OK after their terrible year of earthquakes.
