Local men join in the chorus of many

LOCAL men were amongst 35 members from the Metropolitan Male Choir of South Australia who performed in the Australian Institute of Sport Arena, Canberra, for the Festival of Male Choirs on Saturday, November 15.

Fourteen choirs from Australia and New Zealand made up the 400-strong male voices singing to an audience of more than 1300.

The Band also accompanied the Royal Military College, Duntroon, which played a moving rendition of the Man from Snowy River.

Songs performed included An American Trilogy, Jabbin Jabbin, Everytime I Feel the Spirit, I Dreamed a Dream and Guide Me O Thou Great Jehovah with a verse sung in Welsh.

Ages of choir members ranged from 45 to 90 and all sang without using books.

Part proceeds from Let All Men Sing were donated to Soldier On, to support physically and psychologically wounded serving and ex-serving men and women.
