The Choir’s Newsletter is going on-line. Your editors, Naomi Roseth and Richard Griffiths, are not quite sure what that means, but we are very conscious that most people now read newsletters from their organisations of interest on screens via the Internet. So over the next few issues we will be trying out new ways of providing members and followers of the Choir with topical and stimulating articles with a broad musical interest, particularly where they involve members and friends of Manly Warringah Choir.
In the first on-line edition, the subjects are as varied as ever. Just click on the heading to go to the full article.
