Our social events tend to include food and drink of some description, and we also have a cuppa together at practice around once a month.

Choir 60th Year Anniversary Dinner

Choir Potluck at Lyceum Club - July 2016

Choir BBQ at The Julians' - March 2015

Tenors' Pot Luck Dinner - September 2013


"Song for Bryce" by Don Young

'Song for Bryce' premiered at the Tenor Pot Luck Dinner in celebration of Bryce Gow's 80th Birthday

(to the tune of Little Brown Jug)

 

Bryce was born in thirty-three

 

Parents from OPOTIKI

 

He met Avril having fun

 

On the wharf at Lyttleton.

 

 

Any time you've been away

 

You will always hear him say

 

“Great to have you back again”

 

That's his usual refrain.

 

 

Bryce & Avril live alone

 

(But for Karen, still at home)

 

The other three are now away

 

Even so they've both gone gray

 

 

Any time...

 

 

Many years in February

 

Bryce does host the Edgecumbe Choir

 

“Climb the tree, its necessary”

 

Then come zipping down the wire

 

 

Any Time...

 

 

 Croquet is another game

 

Whack the balls right thru the hoops

 

Bumpy lawn gets all the blame

 

When you miss, just shout out “OOPS”

 

 

Any time...

 

 

Tennis is his fav'rit sport

 

Fires those aces down the court

 

As he gallops to the line

 

He will shout “Lookout it's mine”

 

 

Any time...

 

 

Enthusiasm always there

 

Many friends will all agree

 

Not much sign of wear and tear

 

Even though he's now EIGHTEEEEEEEE.

Four of the coolest singing swingers in - sorry, out of! - town?

Choristers concentrating on croquet:

Something which all choir members can do: eat, drink & chat!

Hazel took all but the last of the photos above, but the individual photos which follow were sneakily snapped by Dave and John:


A noteworthy achievement

Tini brought a cake to the practice on 28 June 2012. She has sung in the soprano section for 40 years!
