On April 25, our Choir honoured our veterans and currently serving members through song again. Each year we have supported ANZAC Commemoration in performances at services. This years social restrictions gave us the opportunity do things differently.
This year we produced a combined Choir and community Video Mashup of Advance Australia Fair, Waltzing Matilda and In God Defend NZ. We also collaborated with Aussie and Kiwis for ANZACs contributing to the 105 Songs for 105 Years mashup on YouTube and shared on Facebook.
The online concert, 105 Songs for 105 Years, contained songs from country music artists and other musicians as well as individuals from the choir. It included our Social Media Officer Amy Feldman; Southern Highlands Mob Leader Rowena Russell; Oberon Mob leader Chloe Swannell with fellow musician and friend Casey McFarlane and Wagga Wagga choir member Zoe Crawford among many others.
It was exciting to have so many members of the community joining us in our Video mashups. We had contributions from far-north Queensland; Indigenous children and children of current service personnel to name a few.
Channel 7 also gave their support in commemorating ANZAC day by sharing our Video Mashup of Advance Australia Fair. They encouraged everyone to be part of the Driveway Dawn Service initiated by the Aussies and Kiwis for ANZACs and supported by our Choir.
Driveway Dawn Service was well supported by our Choir who tuned into the broadcast by ABC Radio National, on the free App, from the Australian War Memorial. Such a great opportunity to pass the legacy onto our youth.
Your support continues to help us bring music and history together to inspire and develop young leaders, encouraging them to learn from the past, live in the present and look to the future.
