Can you sing in tune and hold a part? Have you ever sung in a choir or played an instrument? Haven't sung for years? It's never too late, now's your chance and we all improve with practice! Being able to sing from music is highly recommended. It's not essential to have a really great voice, and we don't audition. We especially need Tenors and Basses, but Sopranos and Altos are also welcome.

Our musical studies choir sings (in four-part harmony) a wide range of mostly classical short pieces from a range of periods. We are lucky to be guided by the talented (and patient) Oliver Raymond and Sheila Thompson, and to have the wonderful Jenny Kain for our piano accompaniment.

First semester 2024 we plan to sing - among other things: The Anvil Chorus from Il Trovatore by Verdi; Gaudeamus Igitur; Lacrymosa and Dies Irae from Mozart's Requiem; Let their Celestial Concerts All Unite from Handel's Samson; I Bought Me a Cat by Aaron Copland; and Lass With the Delicate Air.

We meet on Monday mornings from 9.30 to 12.00 at the Yarralumla Uniting Church, and only change a small term fee to pay for the venue and sheet music needed.
