Endeavour Harmony Chorus Placed - 2nd - Show Choir and 3rd - Community Choir
Despite difficult times, we are very grateful and sincerely thank Sydney Eisteddfod organisers and adjudicators for chosing to support this year's competition by requesting video performance submissions.
Endeavour Harmony Chorus enjoyed preparing for and filming our eisteddfod videos earlier this year. It was great to have an opportunity to focus and work solidly on our vocal production and performance skills in preparation for our video recordings. As it had been some time since we last prepared for a public performance - in full costume, makeup and hair - it was a little challenging for some of us to make sure we could locate all costume items and get our make-up in order prior to the big night, however, we did it! Our last performance had been only a small group of us singing Christmas Carols at Kareela Shopping Centre in December 2020 - between lockdowns.
On the night of our video performance, we were really happy and lucky to be able to have a, very, very quiet audience watching our performance from the front of our rehearsal hall at Jannali. Suitabe social distancing, silent clapping and smiles of moral support were possible. Our new group of probationers were wonderful - their supremely silent, spontaneous responses to our performances were really appreciated.
Endeavour are very honoured to have received a 3rd and 2nd placing amongst quality competitors -
