About Us

AS PART OF OUR 25TH ANNIVERSARY COMMEMORATIONS, WE ARE HOLDING 4 WORKSHOPS (SUITABLE FOR NOVICE SINGERS) IN LATE 2019! CLICK ON 'NEWS' FOR MORE DETAILS!

Sisongke is a joyous dynamic community choir based in Hobart, Tasmania.  We are open to everyone, regardless of singing ability.  The name "Sisongke" means "together" in Zulu, which reflects our origins as an "African" choir, 25 years ago.  But now we sing all sorts of World Music, including music from the Pacific Islands, Aboriginal music, Italian, European Folk Music, etc. 
 
We are an "a capella" choir, which means that (most of the time) we sing without any instruments.  Sometimes the odd drum or wind instrument creeps in, but no loud electronic instruments or orchestras.

We are very inclusive and keen for anyone to join without feeling scared or embarrassed.  We sing for fun not for competition!
 
Our long-time music director (Lyndall Edwards) recently resigned, and we greatly appreciate her accomplished and enthusiastic directorship over the last ten years.  At present (late 2019), we are looking for a new director (if you feel you could fill this role, please contact Carol Robey on 0410 026 473!).  In the meantime, Oliver Gathercole, and at times Aaron Powell, are directing us.
