Colin, I have to say that I had a fabulous day yesterday singing with the very large group which assembled at Batemans Bay. It was very special and will long live in my memory. So much joy. I have to say I totally agree with you about the emotion which can be brought forth from singing. Whilst I was in Canberra Hospital for such a long time, my Moruya choir sang to me over the phone on a number of occasions. With my disability, singing songs like "You raise me up", "Dare to Dream" were so meaningful for me and caused me to shed a lot of tears, but I wouldn't have had it any other way. Continue with what you do, it is so fantastic, and I cherish my long experience of being a member.

Having overcome my fears & misgiving after much prompting & encouragement from my wife Joan I ventured to the Midway Point Community Hall recently & within a week I signed up with Sing Australia Sorell. The welcome I received was overwhelming in a most genuine expression of friendship. I was made to feel at home. The encouragement to find my voice – to immediately participate in the rehearsal sight & sound unknown... I have very quickly attended; The Quadrant Retirement Lifestyle Expo @ Wrest Point & the Regional Gathering @ Launceston. Both “Gigs” were enjoyable with the Regional gathering a not to be a missed experience. What a “ baptism of fire “.... but the warm genuine personalities of all the attendees soon had my nerves under control – my shirt was wet through & the joyful tears I shed uncontrollable. ( This happens at rehearsals too....). The musicality of all shines through. The leaders, accompanists & conductors are truly musicians of in depth learning & performance. All done with the music as the number one.. no personal ego’s... willing to patiently instruct all. Their love of music shines on us all. My spirits have been lifted. Thank you all. Kindest thoughts, Dean M Koch, Sorell Tasmania

Dear Colin and all involved in the Canberra National Gathering. I have just returned home from the National Gathering (had a week in NSW) and would like to say a huge thank you for this wonderful event. It is the first National Gathering I have attended and I was so impressed with all the work and commitment that went in to making it such a great success. I don't know what I thought was the best part because I loved every minute of it. THANK YOU.
