TheCanberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire performed at the Cobargo Folk Festival in February and was one of the choirs performing in "Why Sing?" at the National Folk Festival in Canberra on the Monday of the Easter weekend. We will also be performed our own bracket on the Friday of the Easter weekend.
The Qwire performed Matthew Hindson's "Heartland" with the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir and the Melbourne Gay and Lesbian Chorus on Saturday 27 June in the John Lingard Auditorium at the Canberra Boys' Grammar School. Heartland is a spectacular work for large choir and two pianos. It was commissioned by the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Choir for "Camp Music", a choral festival for Australasian lesbian and gay choirs, which was held in 2001.
The Qwire's next programme will have a lighter programme. We will be joined by another Canberra choir, Can Belto. The concert will be held on 22 November at a time and venue to be announced shortly. We will be performing music from the '60s, '70s and '80s (featuringg, amongst others, Queen and ABBA).
