Who will be performing at Carols in Queens Park in 2014
Two of the main performers at this years carols.
Moonee Valley Brass Inc
Moonee Valley Brass is one of the local community’s longest running community groups. Formerly known as the Essendon City Band, we have been performing at local community events and at competitions around the country and overseas for over 100 years. Moonee Valley Brass Inc provides an outlet for people to express their musical talents. They also provide a junior band to allow young students a chance to learn a brass instrument.
Essendon Coral Society
The Essendon Choral Society, is a choir based in the community of Moonee Valley (formerly the City of Essendon), and provides challenging and exciting opportunities for a community choir. They performs a variety of sacred and secular works throughout the state of Victoria and normally perform at least two major concerts each year, as well as regular commitments to singing at various Christmas carol concerts (which includes this years Queens Park Carols) and city festivals.
Where is Queens Park
Most of our current local clients at Moonee Valley Health and Fitness would know where Queens Park is located, but for those clients who are part of some of our corporate programs in Melbourne CBD and for other personal training and boot camp members who are not familiar with where it is we have added a map below.
Our personal training studio is at 378 Mt Alexander Road, Travancore VIC so if you head up Mt Alexander road heading away from the city, and is less than a 5 minute drive (about 3.5km away).
Address: Cnr Mt Alexander Road and Kellaway Avenue, Moonee Ponds
Melways ref: 28J6
Queens Park is a fantastic park, with lots of great grassed areas for exercise, and hopefully on Sunday 7th December we can get some nice weather for the Christmas Carols.
Moonee Valley Health and Fitness and this years Xmas Carols
Our trainers love being part of the Moonee Valley community and we definitely plan to set up a picnic down at this years Xmas Carols. We would love to see some of the Moonee Valley Health and Fitness members come down to this years event as well and help support the local performers, schools and community groups. If you do plan to attend this years carols, please do let our trainers know as we would be happy for anyone and everyone to join us.
