WE BROUGHT HOME A FIRST PLACE WIN
AT THE AUSTRALIAN NATIONAL EISTEDDFOD IN CANBERRA!
The Elite Vocal Ensemble from Vocalocity were in Canberra this weekend where they participated in The Australian National Eisteddfod. Representing young talent from the Blue Mountains in the Open Choral Group section of the Australian Choral Challenge, this little group brought home FIRST PLACE!
The Vocalocity group consists of upper Blue Mountains high school students who are committed to striving for musical excellence, coming together every week from different schools to sing together as one. Vocalocity Director and Contemporary Voice Specialist Singing Teacher, Amelia Nell, established the group in January of this year.
"These kids are very talented and extremely dedicated. They work hard, practice in their own time outside of the studio and are very deserving of their success at this prestigious event. When they get up on stage, they give it their absolute all - I could not ask more of them! We are a close knit group and I'm absolutely thrilled that their talent and dedication has been recognised on a national level. We're over the moon!" - Amelia Nell
Given the young age of the singers in the group, their win this weekend is particularly impressive as they were up against more established and experienced choirs. Choral music specialist and adjudicator of the Eisteddfod, Sharon Batterham, wrote in her adjudication comments, "A well prepared, thoroughly enjoyable performance. The ensemble of the group, the way you sing together, shows a real affinity with the style of music you present. The tuning tonight was excellent across the group, and I applaud the engagement you had with each other, the music and the audience".
We are so proud of this gorgeous girl! She sang absolutely beautifully in the Sydney Eisteddfod over the past two weeks, way to go Mila! 😁🎤❤️
SINGING FOR OUR SUPPER - FUNDRAISING CONCERT
On Saturday 15th July 2017, the Wentworth Falls School of Arts Theatre resounded with the talented voices of the Vocalocity Elite Vocal Ensemble from Leura.
The choir consists of upper Blue Mountains high school students who are committed to striving for musical excellence, coming together every week from different schools to sing together as one. They work hard, practice in their own time outside of the studio and are very deserving of this opportunity to go to The Australian National Eisteddfod to represent young talent from the Blue Mountains in the Australian Choral Challenge.
Thank you so much to everyone who came along to support the group - it was a smashing success! 🎤✨🎶
