This group meets regularly on the 1st and 3rd Monday of each month at St Ambrose Church Hall, Glenpark Street, North Mackay at 12.45 pm. Rehearsals go from 1.00 pm to 2.30 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.
Several people have recently asked me “what do hand chimes look like?” so I thought I would add a picture (check out Chimes in the News Tab). Like a piano there are black notes and white notes and within our group most players use four chimes. Chimers are building up a new repertoire for 2019 as we have several performance opportunities available during the year. We are looking at music from different countries and sometimes incorporating different instruments as a backing feature. It all adds to the dimension of the sound. We would like to give a big welcome to those new members who have recently joined us and would encourage anyone who would like to have a try, to get in touch with Beth Wallace 49425574 / 0402573810.
We meet at St. Ambrose Anglican hall in Glenpark St., North Mackay at 12.45pm on the second Monday of each month. Next Meeting will be Monday, !st April, 2019.
