LEADERSHIP skills and amazing talents came to the fore for our kids at our recently held January Music Camp, affectionately referred to as 'Jan Camp'.
The talents of our choir members certainly astonished both the leadership teams and parents that came along, with tears of happiness shed along the way, too!
The voices of our choir members sounded fantastic, and Choir Director OJ Rushton was keen for the kids to embrace these singing talents and make efforts to get those talents recognised further afield, both in their local communities as well as potentially ‘on tour’.
Our new Southern Highlands mob leader Rowena Russell received some great news whilst she was at camp. She had secured her debut gig at a pub in Orange in two weeks. Her gig showcased her singing and performing talent, which she attended alongside Choir Director OJ Rushton. They came back with some news that the gig was a great success!
Rowena also received some great mentoring from Oberon mob leader Chloe Swannell, herself an accomplished performer, who is already achieving some success on the road around NSW.
But we also discovered other great sounding voices such as Angel, Tasman, Emily, her sister Grace, as well as ‘little Grace’. Olivia, Zoe, Leah and others.
Throughout camp, the choir team practised hard for the year ahead and on the last day, an impromptu ‘concert’ was put together by everyone, including inviting parents and friends to come and see some of these amazing singing and performing talents on show.
Their skills will put them in the forefront of people’s minds and gives them the potential to become the ‘stars’ of the future, too.
We like to thank Moss Vale Connect Church to allow us to use their venue that was warm and dry and that also had excellent sound equipment and kitchen facilities for us to utilise. Thank you Pastor Donna Jensen and Church Secretary Deb Smith for giving up their time and use of the building.
Thanks go to ‘choir mum’ Kylie Stefaniuk, who went above and beyond to provide the sustenance and comfort needed for our choir members to perform at their very best.
