2017 ushers in AWMC’s 44 years of singing
Blwyddyn Newydd dda I chi I gyd.
2017 heralds another busy year with an overseas tour to Taiwan, Hong Kong and mainland China. The touring group is pictured outside the Chapel at Village Baxter for their last rehearsal before embarking on this historic new adventure.
Immediate Past President Arthur Poole, will fulfil a long held dream to travel to Taiwan with AWMC, to visit and entertain the Bunun indigenous people. Arthur had built up a friendship with the Bunun people over a twenty plus year relationship.
The image taken on February 11th shows the touring group who will depart from Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport on Monday 27th February and return home on Sunday 19th March. Standing second from left in the front row is Michelle Nguyen, accompanist for this tour. I’m certain that the lads will make Michelle feel right at home in their company.
For those of us remaining in Oz, we wish all those travelling a safe, happy and successful tour. We will, in the meantime, prepare ourselves to be regaled with stories both short and tall about the tour. Please keep your editor well informed for the post tour June issue of AWMC News
