Hastings Choristers hosted a unique event to showcase 8 of our region's fine choirs. 
Participating choirs were:

SCAS Senior Choir

Low Rumbles

Iintombi Zicula

Wingsong

Staccato

Bel Canto

Cantorus

Cantabile

Cantorus the SATB mixed voice choir specialises in eclectic repertoire but adores singing big book works. However  for this event they combined with Nina Mestric soprano and treble Jamie Carroll to perform Andrew Lloyd Weber's Pie Jesu which even though it is strictly speaking a Sacred work  has very popular appeal. Contrasting this was a fabulous version of In the Mood  which had the audience's feet a-tappin' !

Cantabile the female capella ensemble were all  grooved up for I can see Clearly now the Rain has gone - and others. They have a great sound and really enjoy making music together  & are always a joy to  listen to.

As well as the fantastic choral  sounds  of a variety of choirs audiences were delighted to hear lots of Music Theatre songs from some very talented youngsters. Three of these youngsters will be performing in the NSW Schools Spectacular in November having survived the rigorous audition rounds ... Laura Bereicua, Jamie Carroll and Jack Begbie.
