Report on our choir in the main Arabic Newspaper El-Telegraph:
The Telegraph newspaper reported our activities on its issue yesterday. The headline reads:
THE ANDALUS ARABIC CHOIR CONTINUES ITS PREPARATION FOR APPEARANCE AT THE EGYPT TOURISM WEEK AT DARLING HARBOUR
The report also provides background about the choir and previous activities. It also includes two photos from our performance last October at the University of Sydney
Help us create a new logo for our choir . The logo should reflect one or more of the following:
music, Arabic, Andalusia, singing and Sydney/Australia
The logo should be created in illustrator/Photoshop and the file emailed to administration
Term 1 of 2015 starts on Tuesday 27 at 7 PM
ARABIC SUBTITLED SONGS provides Arabic songs with English subtitles. The page lists only a few songs at present, including one for Fairouz that our choir sings. Obviously more songs will be coming to this channel. While we cannot speak for the quality of the translation; it just just a cool attempt that will help many Arabic music fans.

In a packed Phillips Hall at the Blackheath Community Centre, our choir performed five muwashahat and melodies over the allocated time of 20 minutes. The audience listened and clapped hands after each song. Many came later to praise the performance and the choir.
