Who Can Join?Anyone! There are no auditions and you only need to like singing, not necessarily to be good at it! You don't need to read music or have experience. We are interested in sharing the enjoyment we get from singing with everyone. We say anyone who can hear the difference between one tune and another can learn to sing. Our music director, Oliver, is very good at getting the best out of us! So come one, come all and sing with us – it is better than therapy.
I'm not sure! / How to Join
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?
Sisongke is a community choir so we try to keep the cost to a minimum, however, we do need to pay the musical director, insurance and hire of the hall! Fees are discounted for families, or if there is hardship we are happy to come to an arrangement. Refugees do not have to pay, until they have had a chance to establish themselves.
$70 a term (4 terms per year)
$60 a term concession (you are entitled to a health care card).
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.
