Holidaying at home in Hobart
Every year we listen as our friends plan trips for the July school-holidays to escape the winter cold of Hobart. We choose to stay in Hobart. We wouldn't miss the Festival of Voices. For 10 years we have been involved with the FOV. FOV has provided our two daughters with the most marvellous opportunities to work and sing with some amazing national and international choral directors. THey have performed several choral works in City Hall and so this beautiful space has become an integral part of their childhood and our family memories. Now the girls have grown to adulthood we have the opportunity of attending Voice-Box in the City Hall as audience members. Last year we thought about how much we would spend on a holiday in warmer climes and decided that we would stay in Hobart and spend our holiday money here. We decided that we could dine out and attend FOV events. We were not disappointed. We totally loved the performances and the cabaret atmosphere that was generated in City Hall.All of us would love to see more live events staged this way throughout the year. City Hall could be such a jewel in Hobart's Crown.
