Friday with Rachel

Although this blog has been quiet for nearly a year the Nourish Women's Choir certainly has not been!!  We continue to meet on Tuesday evenings in New Town and sing our hearts out for an hour and a half.

However, this Friday just gone we were treated to a special workshop with the fabulous Rachel Hore.  Rachel joined us from her Blue Mountains home and was wowed by the sunny warm autumn day that Hobart threw on for her.  Friday evening was almost balmy with most people quickly shedding their coats, cardigans and jumpers ready to learn some new songs from a master!

We were not disappointed by our two hours immersed in song.  We learnt a new warm up song plus two new numbers - one Romanie and the other Pacific Islander (gypsies in grass skirts anyone?!?).

We all loved Rachel and her amazing voice and wonderful arrangements.

And I think that Rachel might have loved us just a little bit too!

And we all love Betsy who is our "something special" (and is often buzzing around in a blur!!).

Now we just need to find somewhere to perform our new repertoire - it has been a while since we were last seen in public!!

All photos thanks to Heather Chaplin.

A Letter from Jane


The Butterfly Tree
Hi Betsy,

How are things in Tasmania? My trip to Zambia was very successful, thank you all so much for sending the additional funds, we can definitely use it to sponsor another orphan - sadly there are so many.
I have added another African song, this time a new school at Libala are singing. The charity is also going to launch a song, called 'Change for the Better' for World Malaria Day on the 25th April to raise funds and global awareness. All the details will be posted on the website and hopefully it will be available to download - we are really excited about it!

Wishing you all a very Happy Easter!
