We hope 2015 brings contentment and good health to all ELM community members, supporters and followers. We look forward to renewing our collaboration with you this year in living out our motto of 'giving light, lifting spirit and offering hope'. Stay tuned for news about our next project!
Nationally, the movie was launched by way of a premiere showing at the National 'Arts&Edges Conference. Our representative at the conference, Guy Boyce (General Manager, Mandurah Performing Arts Centre) reported "The screening went very well with a full house of 700 people in the Goldfields Arts Centre auditorium. ...the audience watched it intently and it got a very generous applause..."
Internationally, the launch involved the simultaneous uploading of the movie onto the Internet. As at the end of 2014, I'm happy to report that the movie has been viewed by more than 1000 internet visitors! Feedback included:
"if there's anything more guaranteed to lift up your spirits than a joyous collection of human voices lifted up in song, then I don't know about it......truly, music feeds the soul.... well done to all involved." Eric Bogle, internationally recognised singer/songwriter;
"I loved watching and listening to this - it gave me goosebumps... CCS are proud to have been part of this endeavour" Anita Graham, President, Churchlands Choral Society;
"Wonderful work, beautiful Bold Park children being children" Parent, Bold Park Community School;
"The movie was viewed by some 2000 people (students, parents, staff of all three schools and invited dignitaries) at the Scotch College speech Night... the screening was the highlight of the night... we are keen to be involved in future ELM productions" paraphrased verbal feedback received from Jenny Sullivan, Music Teacher.
