    I’d like to add my congratulations to Lyn for being named a Woman of Influence. We go back a long way and yes! It does not come as a surprise at all. What did come as a surprise was the size and level of excellence of the choirs at the Voices of Angels concert last night. I had heard Lyn direct the Trebles version of the Vivaldi Gloria before ( in !Melbourne?) but with nowhere near the same numbers. Having been to Venice in 2013 and seen the grills behind which the girls sang, we thought it an inspired idea to suggest the grills at the City Recital Hall! But the biggest surprise of all was the inclusion of boys with changing voices. As Lyn would know, this is an area close to my heart and it was SO wonderful to see and hear all those young men singing parts that exactly suited their vocal range in very skilful arrangements. So congratulations to everyone involved and please ensure that Lyn and Sam receive this email. Meg Matthews
