This group meets regularly on Mondays at St Ambrose Church Hall, Glenpark Street, North Mackay at 12.30 pm. Rehearsals go from 1.00 pm to 3.00 pm. Experience is not essential, but a love of music and friendship is. The group participates in several public performances during the year at varying venues including shopping centres and aged care facilities.
New members are always welcome – no gender bias – as numbers fluctuate throughout the year as grey nomads go on their vacations.
Chimers are enjoying their weekly meetings playing beautiful songs and have been concentrating on the tonal quality of their work. It not only takes practice to physically play the chime at the correct volume, but it also takes auditory training to know the difference between the subtleties of a soft or a very soft tone or similarly loud or very loud tones. Listening is an important skill not only for music but for everyday living.
Chimers meet at St Ambrose Church Hall, 28 Glenpark Street, North Mackay.
Time 12.45pm to 2.30pm. each Monday.
