Does it lift your spirits and make you want to sing? If it does, join the Hervey Bay Seabelle Singers as they learn ABBA’s Dancing Queen in four-part harmony. The chorus is looking forward to learning this song and would love to share this art form with local ladies. You don’t have to be able to read music but you do have to be able to hold your sections part and learn some basic choreography moves. “We have a lot of fun and wear costumes for performances,” Deirdre Robertson said, adding that Party Wizards on Fraser Street was a fantastic place for costumes. “There are four sections in the chorus which correspond to different vocal ranges. The lead section usually sings the melody and has a middle to high vocal range. The tenor section sings above the leads with light pure tones complementing rather than overpowering the leads. “The baritones have a middle range voice as this section sings notes that complete the chord. The basses are the engine of the chorus, with rich mellow voices often giving the rhythm to the song.” If you are not sure what your vocal range is, have a go nd out. The Hervey Bay Seabelle singers are members of the world-wide organisation, Sweet Adeline’s. Rehearsals will be every Thursday evening for six weeks starting February 12, 7-8.30pm, at the Senior Citizens’ Hall, Torquay. Phone 41286958. $476m in funding available Government wants to help support regional businesses and grow the local economy,” Federal Member for Wide Bay and Deputy Prime Minister Warren Truss said. The Skills Fund will support eligible regional businesses to upskill or retrain their employees, to take advantage of new technologies and emerging market opportunities.
