Hi friends

1. Congratulations to Amanda and Elena who successfully passed their auditions last week!

2. Fremantle Songfest

Matt has sent through some more information. I will email around the programme but it is not populated with performance times yet. It looks like we will be singing a couple of songs on the Friday night and Saturday night so I will ask for a show of hands for availability at choir on Thursday - no pressure, I understand it might be difficult for some to get there. The way I see it, the main ones are our 25-minute set on Saturday afternoon and the two songs on Sunday morning.

If you are attending, please pay $40 into the TRS account as soon as possible. We need to pay the registration fees by the end of the month. If you are currently a maybe, I will need you to confirm yes or no within the next couple of weeks.
