River Voices love to sing about love

By Alex Gretgrix

MOAMA Anglican Grammar's school hall will be alive with the sound of music this Father's Day as River Voices holds its annual concert.

The event, affectionately named 'Songs from the Heart', will feature a variety of love and songs about the heart from a range of genres to satisfy all the melophiles out there.

River Voices president Cath Pell said the group wants to change people's perception of choir music by giving them a great concert to enjoy.

"Most people think choral music is heavily related to church music, but it's so much more than that," Cath said.

"We'll be performing songs such as 'Seasons of Love' from Rent and 'Stand by Me' by Ben E King. We want to sing songs from all different genres for us and the crowd to enjoy."

For the choir, singing isn't just about entertaining their audience.

"For us, we of course do it to give our listeners something to enjoy, but it's also a way for us to come together and relax and enjoy something we all love."

The choir will be joined by the Con Spirito choir from Deniliquin, which will add a whole new range of voices and instruments into the mix.

Anyone who is interested in joining the choirs for this event are encouraged to make their way to the MAGS hall from 2.30pm this Sunday.

Entry is $20 per person, however, school students can attend for free.

Refreshments will also be available after the conclusion of the performance.
