We do not rehearse before the day, so please arrive in good time to check out the words of the songs on the programme, and to allow the band leader to brief us on introductions etc.
The ceremony commences at 10:00am goes for about an hour. Morning tea is served afterwards.
Dress: Concert dress: All black for women, black tie for men. It can be very cold up on the headland so you will need to rug up. (thermal underwear is recommended and a dark coat would be handy.)
We can assume that we will be leading the singing of all or some of these songs: I Vow to Thee My Country, Advance Australia Fair, Royal Hymn, Song of Australia, and Land of Hope and Glory.
Please sing the words as per the programme. You will not need the printed music I gave you last week.
We will be accompanied by the Manly Brass Band and lead by their conductor.
