Strange Weather Gospel Choir is a non-auditioned Canberra community choir consisting of around 40 singers whose repertoire includes gospel and spiritual songs as well as African, Indigenous, folk and contemporary pieces. Although the choir sings gospel and spiritual songs, it is not a religious choir. Members are from all walks of life and are united by the love of singing together in a supportive and inclusive environment.

The ability to read music or prior singing experience is not required; you can learn these skills along the way.

We meet on Wednesdays from 7-9pm at the Ainslie Arts Centre, Elouera Street, Braddon.
In 2017, we will rehearse over two semesters. The dates are:
  • Semester 1: 1 February – 21 June
  • Semester 2: 19 July – 6 December

So far in 2017, we have performed in three collaborative concerts in Canberra:

•     with The Canberra Chordsmen at Wesley Uniting Church on Saturday 29 April
•     with Qwire at the Queanbeyan Performing Arts Theatre on Sunday 25 June
•     with Sydney a capella group aChoired Voices at the High Court on Sunday 10 September

Our last performance for the year

We are excited about our forthcoming performance, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, a fundraiser for an SOS Children's Village in Botswana, to be held at the Botswana High Commission on Wednesday 6 December at 7.30pm. So please put this fun-filled event in your diary.
