David (bass) and Liffey (soprano) Carverhill have recently joined Coro. They also sing with Heber Opera.
It's funny how singing can trigger a memory from the past. Whilst rehearsing Over the Rainbow Liffey told an interesting story about how it reminded her of earlier times when she lived in Africa. She says “Dave and I met in Zambia where we were both working on the Copperbelt and involved in a local theatre company.
During our time there we were in many shows together, including the Wizard of Oz and, as our Swan Song in 1981 we produced Oklahoma! We then moved to Johannesburg and joined the Bach Choir where we performed many oratorios including the Verdi and Mozart Requiems and Bach Passions.
I am glad their first singing experience with us provided such a happy memory and I hope they enjoy more Coro singing in the future.
