On Sunday 14th August, the Royal Rehab lifestyle Choir entered the vocal ensemble in the Ryde Eisteddfod. They sang a seven minute medley of songs from the 60’s and 70’s.
The Choir consists of patients with brain & spinal injuries, and other special needs. Their passion of singing and performing had the audience clapping and singing with them. The adjudicator gave the choir a marking of 100 percent in their performance.
Two of the choir members decided to stay on till late evening for the prize giving and to their surprise, the Adjudicator announced the first prize to the Royal Rehab Choir.
The other choir members did not know about their first prize until rehearsals the next day.
Special thanks to Julie Hill from Royal Rehab, who had the vision of establishing the Royal Rehab Choir. Roseanna Gallo trains the choir every week and also conducts them at their performances.
The Choir will be performing at the Granny Smith Festival, Light Up East Ryde Event and the Rotary Carols on the Common.
