The 2004 Chamber Choir is a continuation of the 15 Year 10 girls who
performed so successfully in 2003, but unlike last year this choir had no
rehearsal allocation until recently. Now in Year 11, the girls successfully
defended their title winning the U18 Chamber Choir division in Sydney. Once
again, there has been a focus on vocal jazz, with other styles of music learned
for the appropriate occasions. One of the highlights was the Choir’s reworking
of “Smoke gets in your eyes” for World Teachers Day. With somewhat corny
and cheeky lyrics written by the choir, the staff was thrilled with this musical

Much of the repertoire was from the previous year, but with the limited
rehearsal time, the emphasis was more about the enjoyment of participation
and singing well than learning a new repertoire.
