This charity event for the Royal Children’s Hospital Neo-Natal Unit was again a part of the Choir calendar in November, a beautiful day at Cruden Farm (the late Dame Elisabeth Murdoch’s residence). Oliver Thomson represented the Choir singing Away in a Manger – not that we needed any reminding of how close Christmas was!
Oliver also participated in a world first, the Tale of Two Organs – Sunday 30 November – where both the Melbourne Town Hall Grand organ and the stunning Regent Theatre Wurlitzer organ were showcased in the same concert – a mix of classical and theatre organ styles. Oliver sang Pie Jesu in part of the classical program at the Town Hall.
Oliver had a busy end to last year as he also performed in The Snowman for Melbourne Recital Centre on Saturday 6 December 2014.
