SING WITH US

We welcome singers throughout the year. Come along to one of our regular Wednesday night rehearsals to meet us and join in the singing. 

 

 

Commitment

Singing in the choir involves a commitment to regularly attend rehearsals and learn repertoire. However, we don’t expect our singers to sing in every concert. We ask that choristers commit to 80% of the year’s activities and that no more than three rehearsals are missed in a program.

Attendance

Rehearsals take place in Sydney on most Wednesday nights 7.30 till 10pm. There may be additional rehearsals prior to performances if required. The choir takes a summer break in December/January.

Performances usually take place on Sundays.

Contact us by telephone or email to make arrangements to come along to a rehearsal.

The Audition Process

You will be asked to sit in on a regular Wednesday night rehearsal.

During the break, our Musical Director will ask you to sing some scales to determine your vocal range and ability. Ability to read music and sight-sing is desirable but not essential. There is no audition fee.

 

Membership

After a successful audition, you will be asked to come along to a number of rehearsals as a trial after which you will be asked to join the Society as a member and pay membership fees, presently $170 per year. Subsidy is available in cases of financial hardship and any requests will be kept in the strictest confidence.

Repertoire

Our repertoire is varied and is selected on the basis of the nature of each performance.  We sing classical ltiurgical and secular music; opera, jazz and musicals, popular and folk music in many languages including English, Italian, Russian, Yiddish, Ladino and Hebrew. 

TESTIMONIALS

After singing and connecting with other joyful, friendly people, I go home on a high.
