In the holidays, members of the Glennie Senior Choir travelled to Brisbane to perform with the visiting African Children Choir at the Powerhouse. In a very energetic two hours, we heard from five other choirs in the first half, and the ACC took to the stage for the second half for over an hour.
Throughout the afternoon, members of the choir and managers told stories of the history of the choir and the amazing background of some of children who, having overcome poverty and loss of close family members are now touring USA and Australia.
The afternoon was also dedicated to the late Mr Harley Mead, with each choir telling the audience their connection and honouring Mr Mead by singing one of his compositions. The Glennie girls sang "River of Dreams" which was dedicated to both the ACC and the School. For this performance, they combined with the African choir and the result was magical.
Thank you to the girls for giving up a day of their holiday and to the staff: Miss Emma Kann, Mrs Wendy Evans and Mrs Sharon Gilbert for travelling with the girls. It was an inspiring afternoon!
