On Sunday 4 March, the Trinity Tiger Tones performed at the Glenferrie Festival on behalf of beyondblue, donating a massive $10,000 to support the charity, which helps over three million Australians suffering from anxiety and depression. Tiger Tones baritone, Harry von Bibra, shares highlights from the show and what to look forward to from the a capella group in 2018.
We have worked hard over the past 12 months to raise these funds, with our efforts culminating in a fundraising concert at the Athenaeum Theatre at the end of 2017. We were very proud to be able to make such a contribution to beyondblue
, and to champion their efforts to promote positive mental health, and to reduce depression and suicide among the Australian community.
Singing on the Petstock Stage on Sunday, it was a difficult task to try and hold the crowd following a parade of Labrador puppies before us, but the boys absolutely nailed it. It was also the first performance of our new recruits for 2018, and we were all very proud of their efforts. We performed 8 songs alongside presenting our donation, and even managed to get the staunchest of super-dads in the crowd singing along to Sweet Caroline
2018 looks to be a promising year for the Tones, as we work on new music, continue to raise funds for beyondblue, as well as performing at several upcoming College events. Be sure to catch us at the Dean’s Dinner on Friday 27 April, and stay tuned for information on our annual Fundraiser Dinner. Otherwise, keep up to date by following us on Facebook
