Singers wanted - 'enchoir' here

Summary

Brimbank Multicultural Community Choir has put out the call for new singers to bring fresh voices to join the singers’ ranks.

Brimbank Mayor Cr Margaret Giudice said the Brimbank Multicultural Community Choir was an asset to our community with strong history of reflecting and celebrating diversity.

“It is always a delight to hear the Brimbank Multicultural Community Choir perform – not only because of their beautiful music – but because the choir celebrates and embodies the diversity that makes Brimbank such a great place to live,” Cr Giudice said.

Musical Director Veronica Gauci said the choir was seeking new members with a variety of voices – including, baritones, tenors, altos and sopranos.

“We have a wonderful group of singers, but we’re looking to boost our numbers.

“Singing together is a wonderful way to enjoy music and meet new people.

“You don’t need to be an experienced singer – all you need is a love of music and a willingness to join in,” Veronica said.

The choir meets regularly during school terms and occasionally performs at events, for example a recent Bowery Theatre performance with Ajak Kwai and Citizenship Ceremonies. Performances are optional for members.

Veronica said the choir sang in English as well as a diverse range of languages – with recent performances in Dutch, German, Italian, Maltese, and Tagalog – making it one of few, truly multicultural choirs in Melbourne.

“Some people can find singing in different languages challenging at first – but we take it slow and most people get the hang of it very quickly. It’s always a fun and rewarding experience to master a new piece,” Veronica said.

When: Mondays during school term, 7-9pm

Where: St Albans Community Centre (STACC), Princess Street, St Albans
