WA Day Fun in the Park

In June a small(ish) group of ladies went out into the glorious winter sunshine to sing at the Lions sponsored WA Day – Have A Go community event in Bullcreek.  We just love getting out there and singing!

BHA Western Region Success

2014BHA1s

We are very chuffed for our quartets Thats What She Said (aka Hi Jinx, on the left in their orange and purple) who placed first and Eureka (in the purple and orange on the right) who placed 3rd in the Invitation Quartet Competition part of the BHA Western Region Competition for 2014.  A Cappella West also performed and surprised  the audience with our costume reveal.

2014 World’s Greatest Shave

2014Shave

ACW were happy to support one of our members when she again shaved her hair to raise funds for the Leukaemia Foundation.  Some of our  ladies crazy coloured their hair in support and we sang up a storm at Cockburn Central Shopping Centre for locals and shavers alike. 

First Performance for 2014

2014TAPPS03s

This was our reaction when we heard our first performance for the year was scheduled in the 2nd week back from the summer break!  Fearlessly this small group sang up a storm for TAPPS in Cottesloe in what turned into a truely joyous performance.  What a way to start the year!

Carolling in Fremantle on a “scorching summers day” with a very young director!

Freo – Way to Go!

2013GoFreo01s

We dressed in purple for our rehearsal on the 23rd of September to show our support for the Fremantle Dockers AFL footballers through to their Grand Final.  We marked, we kicked, we gave goals and no goals and that was just the warm-up!  We sang the club song – with harmonies of course and even had purple cake!  We had fun and Go the Dockers!

Happy 5th Birthday!

Members, past members and coaches celebrated in true ‘ACW style’ our chorus’s 5th birthday anniversary on the 18th September 2013, sharing memories, photographs, stories, songs and a lot of laughs.  ACW has had an extraordinary journey in the past 5 years with many achievements in charity events, performance and shows, and of course – on the contest stage.

Nannup Flower Festival

2013Nannup02s

The Nannup Flower Festival was our destination in August 2013.  It was a pleasure to get away from the city for the weekend and entertained the festival goers.  We also enjoyed a little shopping, cheese tasting, garden gazing, photography and the odd Devonshire tea.
