Kalahari Carols: Join Strange Weather Gospel Choir and the ANU Choral Society for our annual fundraising event. This year the charity is the SOS Children's Village in Francistown, Botswana. Enjoy an evening of Christmas carols and other music—from the upbeat sounds of Africa to the sublime choral work 'A Ceremony of Carols' by Benjamin Britten, followed by traditional English Christmas carols. Supper is included.
Strange Weather Gospel Choir is an auditioned Canberra community choir of around 50 singers whose repertoire includes gospel and spiritual songs as well as African, Indigenous, folk and contemporary pieces. It is not a religious choir and members are from all walks of life. We are united by our love of singing together in a supportive environment. As a performance choir, SWGC entertains at a variety of events and festivals in Canberra and the region.
Visit three rehearsals for free anytime to see what we are like. If you decide to join the choir, you will have a simple audition with the Musical Director. Contact our membership officer Alison directly at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. The ability to read music or prior singing experience is not required.
We meet on Wednesdays, 7-9pm at the O'Connor Uniting Church Hall, corner of Brigalow St & Scrivener Street, O'Connor. The 2019 dates are: Semester 1: 6 February – 26 June; Semester 2: 24 July – 11 December.
