The Proms in the Ponds

The Clocktower centre in Moonee Ponds was today the scene of a bit of a frolic through a British  institution, The Proms.  The audience joined in with the Napier Community Orchestra, the Essendon Choral Society, the Voce Di Vino Ross choir, and the Bella Mammas Choir in singing patriotic favourites such as Rule Britannia, Land of Hope and Glory and Jerusalem.  A rousing rendition of Advance Australia Fair was also given.  The concert was played to a substantial house, and a good time had by all. Well worth a repeat in 2012, I would have thought.  Well done to all those involved.
