After much intense discussion, it has been decided to put the Technicolour Dreamcoat away in the cupboard until another year. Rockhampton Musical Union will now present the amazing musical production of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (by Poppins' composers Sherman & Sherman) in the Pilbeam Theatre in October. Well known local set designer and constructor, Ross James, has been commissioned to build the flying car- check out the story in the Morning Bulletin.
Auditions will be held in the RMU Hall 4 - 8 June. Click here to book your audition slot and stay tuned to the Choir's Facebook page for more information as it is released.
The choir will join with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra and The Australian Voices to perform the immortal choral masterpiece, Handel's Messiah, in the Pilbeam Theatre on Wednesday 14th December.
Messiah is an English-language oratorio composed in 1741 by Geroge Frideric Handel, with a scriptural text compiled by Charles Jennens from the King James Bible, and from the version of the Psalms included with the Book of Common Prayer. It is one of the best-known and most frequently performed choral works in Western music.
Rehearsals will commence at RMU Hall on 22nd June and continue at intervals througout the year. If you have ever wanted to be part of a great choral experience, come along and join us.
