Murwillumbah Philharmonic Choir Visit Norfolk Island

Friday, May 10, 2019

What a wonderful pleasure it has been for Rebecca, Maria and all at the Norfolk Island Travel Centre to welcome a group of fifty five singers and supporters of the Murwillumbah Philharmonic Choir to the Island this week. Not only are they enjoying a holiday together in this their 40th Birthday year, but also performing for the local community and visitors.

For those who attended their performance of Treasured Shores – Norfolk and Tweed on Wednesday afternoon they were treated to a simply lovely time, enjoying both classical and modern songs within the peaceful atmosphere and beauty of St. Barnabas Chapel. Thanks go to David Rogers for the use and set up of his keyboard and amp and helping with rehearsals and performances. Great thanks also to the choir themselves who arranged for this to be a charity performance for The Sunshine Club by donating all the ticket proceeds.

This Sunday the choir will also perform prior to a Combined Church Service at All Saints Church starting at 4.30pm. At this performance it has been agreed that all the collection proceeds will go to Youth Ministry on Norfolk Island. Sincere thanks to David Fell for arranging for both performances, and also Elaine Sanders at the Uniting Church for supporting this Sunday’s performance. Further generosity from our community has come from David at Eldoo, donating the use of a van for the group to use during the week.

We certainly hope that everyone in the group has enjoyed their holiday together. Your generosity in performing for us as well as donating to our local charities has been very much appreciated. From all at the Norfolk Island travel centre we hope your final days on Norfolk are relaxed and happy, and wish you a safe journey back home on Tuesday.
