Singing for Fun!

If you have ever been told you can’t sing then the the ‘New Look’ Birregurra Singing Circle is the singing group for you!



“What’s new” I here you ask? Well….all the following:

  • During 2017 the Singing Circle will meet every last Monday of the month, starting February, the 27th through to, and including, the last Monday of November.
  • It will be led by experienced and vibrant community singing group leader Vic Fenton and all are encouraged to contribute their special talents.
  • It is a non-performing singing group so no pressure for rehearsals or solos, we sing purely for fun of it and the wonderful benefits singing in a group can bring.
  • It will start at 7pm and conclude at 8:30pm but we will have chance to catch up over a cuppa half way through during 15 minute break.
  • Only $5 and all are welcome – LET’S SING!
  • Birregurra Christ Church Hall, cnr Sladen & Beal Streets, Birregurra.

Update on Painter’s Group





Painter’s group sessions will begin at the Anglican Church hall (cnr Sladen and Beal Streets) on Thursday 2nd March from 11:00am to 2:00pm

Cost will be $5.00 per person per session.

Fees will help to cover the cost of hall hire and the supply of tea/coffee and biscuits. Artists of all levels are welcome and hopefully can develop, share and practice their skills in a friendly and supportive environment.


 Some easels and watercolour/drawing boards will be available for use, otherwise artists will be expected to bring their own materials and art equipment.


 Those who can come along on the day at the times available, please do so. For those who cannot, but still wish to be involved with a social painters group, please let me know and if enough interest is generated we will try to organize another group to meet at a different time.

Hot Club Swing

 
Friday 10th March at the Carolyn Theatre Cororooke

Tickets Cowlick Book Shop, Cororooke Shop or https://www.trybooking.com/OMSS

Hot Club Swing’s unique style of French Gypsy Jazz is alive and well; music
originating in the 1930s but still thriving in the 21st century. The group draws its
influences from an exotic palate of music from Latin America, Swing and
Eastern Europe, painting on a canvas that can be eloquently French, starkly
rustic or darkly and romantically gypsy.
The quintet features: Ben Calderazzo (leader/guitar); Phil Smurthwaite (violin);
Rob Gador (double bass); Jeremy Bourke (rhythm guitar), and Nadine Joy
(vocals) and is inspired by the original masters, Django Reinhardt and Stephane
Grappelli with influences from more modern groups such as Latcho Drom &
Bireli Lagrene.
Having played together for over 15 years, some notable performances include:
Port Fairy Music Festival, Queenscliff Music Festival, the 53rd National Jazz
Convention, Boite World Music Café, inclusion on the charity CD Waterfront
Christmas for United Way and supporting headline act Hank Marvin at the 2015
Oz Manouche Festival of Gypsy Jazz.
Hot Club Swing's first two albums, Musique du Jour (2002) and Sacré Coeur
(2005), both gained regular airplay on local and national Australian radio, and
achieved notable sales figures, making both albums now out of print. In late 2013
Hot Club Swing released their third full-length studio album Douce Ambiance to
sell-out audiences and glowing reviews.
As a result of many showcase performances, the group has built a dedicated and
diverse audience, which is always eager to return to experience this captivating
music. The group has also been featured at various festivals, as well as concert
settings and private bookings, always bringing a certain joie de vivre!
“Hot Club Swing capture a warm, swinging all-string sound taking audience hearts
and imaginations captive….the band’s intuitive and empathic interplay is a feature of
their live set.” The Age.
