It's not about the voice

THERE is nothing more uplifting to Christmas spirit than the stirring sounds of a mass choir and Leslie Park will ring with harmonies on Sunday, December 18 when the Warwick Men's Gospel Choir takes to the Carols stage.

Choir organiser Bruce Eddiehausen said if you counted last year's rained out Carols, the men's choir had been in rehearsals for around 62 weeks.

"Choir members are absolutely excited about the opportunity to do something extraordinary at Carols this year," Mr Eddiehausen said.

"Every time another man joins it sounds better. Men come along and say, 'but I can't sing' and we tell them, 'this is a choir for men who can't sing'.

"Once numbers get over 40, the critical mass protects those who aren't particularly good singers and the voices blend together to form a beautiful harmony. These men are learning to sing in a big group - they sing with all their heart and the sound is fantastic."

Anyone interested in joining the Warwick Men's Gospel Choir should come along to The Lounge in Carmody St at 7.30pm on Wednesdays.

The Carols in Leslie Park are on Sunday, Decmeber 18, from 5.30pm.
