Singers present Gallipoli tribute
THE Bundaberg Orpheus Singers have presented a moving performance to commemorate the Gallipoli landing.
Bundaberg Orpheus Singers musical director Alison O'Malley said the two sessions held at the Shalom College Performing Arts Precinct over the weekend went "very well".
"It was really good actually," Ms O'Malley said.
"It was lovely - most enjoyable - and we had a lot of positive comments."
Ms O'Malley said the group held off with the commemorative performance until now.
"I didn't want to do something when everyone else was doing it," she said.
"So it seemed like a really good time before that year of commemoration finished in July.
"We had some beautiful music - it was a good was to commemorate the Gallipoli landing."
Ms O'Malley said the 38 singers had enjoyed performing.
"It's a different style of concert. We had the big screen with photographs that went with the music," she said.
"I think that was very moving. It just adds something to the performance to have beautiful old photographs that went with the music."
Ms O'Malley said the audience was asked not to clap.
"It was a different idea - we wanted it to flow more without changing the mood," she said.
"But a few couldn't help themselves, which is nice is some ways to know they were enjoying it."
