On a Thursday evening in Carlisle from 7.30 till 10, you can share a biscuit with us and learn some of this year’s new songs. Although we pay attention to Simone our musical director while we’re practising, we’re a friendly bunch so we find time to chat in the breaks, and the night-owls often stay out at the local cafe afterwards. You can come along up to four times as a prospective member before being invited to audition to join the ensemble, which involves singing one of the songs we’ve been practising. And don’t worry – even prospective members qualify for coffee and snacks. Once you’ve joined, you’ll be singing with us in our own concerts, and helping us entertain the appreciative local community in venues from civic centres to farmers markets. You might come to one of the choral events in Dunsborough, Guildford or around Perth, and in the lead-up Christmas you’ll be carolling at both private and public functions, before a well-earned break in January. All we ask for in return for this sociable life of musical excitement is $40 per month membership fee, regular attendance at rehearsals and – watch the conductor! 😉
Our members are almost as diverse as our music – with many ages and backgrounds of people from parents of toddlers to jet-setting retirees, singing a range of music from Bohemian folk songs to Bohemian Rhapsody, and from Blue Moon to Blue Christmas – so we’re confident you’ll find plenty to like. Most of us can read music fairly well, and we also have some members who learn quickly by ear, but you can judge the standard for yourself if you come to a rehearsal.
When you’d like to come along and meet us, or find out more about whether our group is what you’re looking for, please first contact Kylie (Vice President) on 0409 296 939 or Simon (President) at email@example.com, who can answer any questions and make sure we have some music ready for you.
