We welcome men of all ages and backgrounds to come and sing with us.
As we are an auditioning chorus we are looking for guys who can hold a tune so you will need to pass a singing audition. You'll record yourself singing in the chorus which will be assessed by our music team for quality and accuracy. You'll be given valuable feedback on strengths and weaknesses and if you work hard we'd love to have you as a member!
Members enjoy weekly rehearsals which are both educational and fun along with hanging out with a bunch of guys all united in wanting to sing great music together.
We perform publically at events such as the National Multicultural Festival, collaborative shows with other local singing groups, lots of carols during the Christmas season as well as private functions. We also do free shows at aged care facilities around Canberra.
As a member you'll have access to our current repertoire and learning materials and be expected to regularly practice in your own time and attend rehearsals. You'll enjoy expert tuition from our musical director which will improve your vocal abilities as an individual and also as part of our chorus.
There are ongoing membership fees that cover the costs of our rehearsal venue, music copyright, director fees, uniform, insurance, national registration etc, whew! These costs will be explained to you during the audition process.
Our chorus is part of a national body called Barbershop Harmony Australia. This presents opportunities to perform annually in a competition environment with singers from around Australia and overseas. We also get formal recognition of our singing goals achieved and valuable feedback and development tips.
We rehearse most weeks of the year except for a few weeks over the end of the year. (You can see exact dates here).
We rehearse on Tuesday evening from 7pm till 9:30pm at:
Woden Seniors Club
