The festive season is all about getting together, caring & sharing and making memorable moments.
On Saturday December 14 the CPPA is hosting an afternoon of community camaraderie and musical merriment at Progress Hall from 1:30-5:30ish. A full program of community choirs and local musicians will provide a friendly backdrop for socialising with friends and neighbours in our community owned hall.
The One Voice Mob Choir, Coal Point Public School Choir, Toronto Chorale and the ClydeStreet Band will all be strutting their musical stuff, along with moments interspersed with community carol-oke (sing-a-longs).
This community social of seasonal singing is a way to showcase music at the Hall, the acoustics are wonderful, and it provides an occasion for local musicians to perform.
The festive season is also about caring and supporting others within the community, there’ll be donation buckets to receive dollars and baskets to receive gifts from the community to donate to local charities and the groups that the performers support.
The community-spirited event will also furnish an opportunity for locals to join up or renew their CPPA/TASNG membership for the year…and beyond. Afternoon tea will be bring-a-plate to share of festive fare.
With many musicians committing to this community event the CPPA is seeking a commitment from those interested in coming by an RSVP for a free ticket. You can book a whole table or single seats, you can come along for a single choir, the whole chorus, or pop in to renew your membership or donate.
RSVP by 11/12/19 online through the eventbrite page

One Voice Mob is a community choir based out of Windale and set up by Centre for Hope (C4H) to support young disadvantaged people who like to sing to come together. C4H helped start the group and is closely involved with the choir, booking performances, providing rehearsal space, as well as the CEO, Geraldine, and her daughter being members. Geraldine is a huge supporter of local communities and it's with this in mind she was able to keep the local Carey Bay Hair Art open. Centre for Hope is exploring running some wellbeing programs out of the salon and providing the kind of support that they do on a daily basis.
The ClydeStreet Band formed in 2016 to perform at open mic venues in the Newcastle and
Hard work, tea, beer and laughter combine to produce their ensemble style that resonates with audiences at community events, festivals and private functions.
A collective of harmonica, guitar, keyboard, ukulele, banjo, bass, percussion and drums, ClydeStreet play creative interpretations of jazz, country and contemporary numbers.
Music for the ears and the feet, they’ll be a highlight of the Music to Re-member on 14/12/19.
