We want to share our love of singing with everyone. There are no auditions and you don't need to read music or have experience. You only need to like singing, not necessarily to be good at it!

Anyone who can hear the difference between one tune and another can learn to sing. Being in a choir is the best way to learn!

Our musical director, Oliver, is kind and fun, and does not criticise people individually.

Not sure?

Not sure? That's fine. Turn up a couple of times (free) and if you don't like it, don't come back. Simple as that.

What does it cost?

$70 a term (4 terms per year)

$60 a term concession (health care card).

If there is hardship we are happy to come to an arrangement. Refugees do not have to pay, until they have got established. We are a non-profit organisation. All the fees go toward paying the musical director, hall hire and insurance.

What do you expect me to do?

We expect you to turn up as regularly as possible, sing and pay your fees. If you want to be more involved, you can also participate in social activities, fundraising activities and organising the choir (through the committee or just helping with stuff).

When and Where?

Rehearsals are at the Friends School Meeting House, corner of Argyle and Boa Vista Streets, in Newtown, on Thursday nights between 7.00 and 9.00 pm. Some weeks we don't practice, so if you are unsure contact someone or check the term dates.

Research has shown that singing can be good for you on many levels. It may help lower stress, boost immunity and lung function, enhance memory, improve mental health, and help you cope with physical and emotional pain.

One of the best things about singing is that you don’t have to be good at it to reap the rewards. You can sing on your own in the shower or to your favorite tunes on the radio. Or, you can join a choir or singing group for even more benefits such as connectedness and a sense of belonging.
