An enthusiastic group of Vox Populus members set up and manned stalls selling all manner of treats and good food – books, drinks, jars filled with goodies, cakes, burgers and curries. The crazy hair and badges stalls did a roaring trade, with audience members and performers alike sporting multi-coloured hair and the much sought-after “Vox Rocks” and “I’m with Willow” badges through the afternoon.
It’s always a special moment when we get to honour a hard-working and dedicated QSC member with a life membership. This year, we have two recipients, Michael Strachan, who has worked tirelessly to support QSC for many years, notably as the President up until this year; and Kym Strachan, who has been a driving force in fundraising and tour organisation, and this year stepped into a role on the management committee.
MC duties were ably shared by Michael Wilson and Christine Trappett.
Thanks go to our dedicated Musical Directors, Sarah Landis (Poco Voci), Ruth Skippen (Stella Voce), Danny Crump (Vivace) and Michael Wilson (Vox Populus and More Than Words) and our talented accompanists Connie Lien and Laurel Muirhead. We also extend a huge thanks to everyone who helped with bump in and bump out, sound and stage management, and everyone who donated items, or set up and managed one of our fete stalls.
