The Diamonds Choir
The unanimous enjoyment of one of the group activities attending a free seniors’ music concert once a month at Bondi Pavilion demonstrated that the group shared a love of music and singing, so ‘The Diamonds’ community choir was formed in January 2013.
Dale Stephenson is the choir manager.
The choir gave its first performance at the launch in March 2013 in front of an audience of more than 50. As they learn new songs and tunes, they will hold more concerts at the Art Café, and visit other community groups and places to perform there.
