The Combined Unions Choir
Covid restrictions couldn’t stop the Brisbane Combined Unions Choir. They put their skates on and rehearsed by Zoom, even completed two songs by Zoom and Youtube! Older yes, but stronger than ever, keeping busy with a new project… Under the Cover of Covid, stories of working through the pandemic — with their favourite songwriters Sue and Lachlan and community theatre writer Therese Collie. Listen to the choir and learn, it’s never too late to join or rejoin.
Jumping Fences — the hosts of Foco Nuevo — play a unique mix of Latin American and original songs. The song-writing partnership of Sue Monk on guitar and vocals, and Lachlan Hurse on electric bass, together with James Harper on drums and Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, perform arrangements that move easily between tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that reveal an incisive insight into Australian life.
