"..unless a kernel of wheat falls to the ground and dies, it remains only a single seed. But if it dies, it produces many seeds." (John 12:24)
Harvest play on the 1st Sunday of each month at the St Kieran's 9:30am Mass.
Today, the group comprises Kevin Mascarenhas, Nuala Pearson, Vanessa Johnston and Erica Griffiths. Recent additions also include the very talented Adrian Pulley (Bass) and Murray Hamer (Violin).
The group has seen many members come and go over its 20 odd years (some odder than others)!
Kevin and Nuala, the longest-serving 'Harvesters', have notched up over 20 harmonious years together, Vanessa, about 15, while Erica, prior to joining Harvest about 5 years ago, was herself, no stranger to music group membership.
We are also members of the Cantor Club, fulfilling a desire to sing and be part of a large, friendly, choral group!

Sonic Spirit plays on the fourth Sunday of every month at the 9.30am Mass at St Kieran's.
The group is comprised of Soo Mi Lee on Keyboard, Anthony Frazer on Guitar and Vocals, Kathryn Williams on Guitar and Vocals, Adrian Pulley on Bass, Jason Williams on Drums, Beata Kromrych on Violin, Maria Dunn and Melissa Sandes on Vocals.
Not that it matters, but our ages range from about 25 to 40. Most of the group members have played and sung in various Cover Bands, Church Bands or Choirs over the years. Some of us are classically trained while others write original songs. So, between us we enjoy music from a wide range of genres.
Our practice usually takes place on a Wednesday or Thursday evening of the week before we play. Members of the group also try to attend the practice sessions run by Ben Marshall on Wednesday nights at St Cecilia's. This enables the group to touch base with musicians from other groups, to stay current, learn new repertoires and keep continuity between services each week.
