Concluding on a high with a rousing medley ‘O Happy Day’, Serendipity choir performed the last concert in their 10-year anniversary series last week. 

In a celebration of a decade of singing, the Serendipity choir held a series of concerts across the Highlands over the past month. 

The final concert was held in Bundanoon on Saturday, December 9 with the choir performing to a sold out audience.

Member for Goulburn Pru Goward was a special guest of the evening. 

She said the choir was “fantastic”, congratulating musical director Kerith Fowles on the wonderful repertoire and high standard of performance. 

Deputy Mayor Ian Scandrett and councillor Graham McLaughlin were also special guests at previous concerts throughout the series, with Mr Scandrett addressing the choir and thanking them for their dedication and hard work over a decade.

A “most successful” raffle was drawn at each concert, with the proceeds donated to Challenge Southern Highlands at Welby Nursery and John Creighton of Bundanoon Wombat Care.

At the final show, the musical director Kerith Fowles expressed thanks to all the behind the scenes volunteer helpers for their support and the loyal patrons who have attended over the years.

Choir member Janet King said the choir is looking forward to another decade of camaraderie and singing together.
