Posted Tuesday, July 5, 2016

This month we are having something a little different.

Earlier this year Chris Wheeeler a renowned singer, instrumentalist and choir leader took a singing party to trek around Nepal learning songs and soaking up Nepal's unique culture.

Chris Wheeler

To raise funds and help this little country Chris has put together a program about her and her fellower traveller's experiences there. The night with entails songs they gathered on their journey, songs they took especially on their journey and first hand recollections of the trip.

Chris will sing herself and also Margaret Bradford and Kerry McGuire two notable singers plus singing as a choir.

One person on the trek was a talented photographer and these photos will be presented on the overhead and there will be a talk from the Nepalese trek organiser.

So quite a full and educational night.

See you at the Tradies (meals very reasonable too so you can make a whole night of it)

Yours in music,
