Adelaide’s acclaimed singing group, Con Brio, relocated to Living Choice Fullarton at the beginning of 2016 and practises in the auditorium every Tuesday afternoon from 1.45pm to 3.45pm.
Con Brio was formed in 2005 under the direction of acclaimed artist and director Kim Spargo. ‘Con Brio’ means “lively and with spirit” and the group is certainly encouraged to be lively, singing four-part harmonies, some with a Capella, but mostly accompanied by piano or guitar during performances. Kim sources the music and, as director, accompanist and arranger, provides an eclectic mix of music that suits the choir members’ voices and very often makes them laugh. “We’re a social group that comes together to enjoy singing and receive a little musical guidance along the way,” says Kim.
The choir performs throughout the year to social groups, churches and fringe festivals and has a broad repertoire. Kim says requests for performances are increasing but they would like to sing for live audiences more often. “Wine, Women and Song in 2015 was our first Fringe gig and we had such a great time that we have a new show this year, ‘Songs for a Lazy Afternoon’.” The show will be held at Living Choice Fullarton on 13th March at 5pm and tickets cost $20.
