BWC goes West!

We’ve packed our bags and are heading West!

On Friday, 31 May we will gather in Denmark, WA, spend three days at the Denmark Festival of Voice, then meander back towards Perth for a big closing gig on Saturday 8 June. 
Along the way we’ll meet choirs, swap songs, join with children’s choirs, enjoy the local delights (Margaret River wineries, anyone?) and have a rollicking good time! 

Dare to Believe: August 25

Hot on the heels of our whirlwind tour of WA, Dare to Believe showcases the best of our current repertoire. We’re back at the Lithuanian Club in North Melbourne to show you just how great we sound after touring together! Enjoy old favourites alongside some show-stopping new tunes. There’s something for everyone!

We’re also thrilled to be joined by Tilley, a local singer,
songwriter and vocal coach who sings of love, loathing, transformation and what it means to be human. A fabulous opener to what promises to be an amazing show.

Film Fundraiser on 6 March

Film Fundraiser on 6 March

See On The Basis Of Sex, the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, while helping to raise funds for the Brunswick Women’s Choir’s tour.

On The Basis Of Sex tells the story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg and how she took on the system to fight for equality. We think she’s our kind of woman!

If you’re planning to see this movie, come and see it with us! You’ll get to see the movie, hear a few songs and feel the satisfaction of helping us raise funds for our upcoming tour of the West!

So join us on 6 March at Cinema Nova, Carlton, for a 6.30 showing.

Book at TryBooking (tickets: $25 full and $17 concession).

Find out more about the film on YouTube.

Sometimes we find it really hard to answer the question: What kind of music do you sing? This new promotional video answers it for us!

Get the lowdown on our current favourite songs, hear from our directors about what drives us and listen to samples of our songs – from the reverent to the irreverent … and everything in between!

Enjoy! and don’t forget to tell all your friends…

The Brunswick Women’s Choir will paint the town WHITE!

After six years, White Night has become a hugely popular event in Melbourne’s social calendar. But in 2018 the electric evening will get a little bit hotter as the Brunswick Women’s Choir add their magic to the night.

We’ll be amplifying the atmosphere in the Melbourne Museum for two different shows. Bring the family along for an 8pm show, or warm up your late-night vibe with a 10pm performance.

We’ve chosen a diverse repertoire – a few songs to evoke the energy of the wilder wonders around us, and a few to get you in the groove for some Saturday night sizzle.

Details:
Location: Melbourne Museum, 11 Nicholson St, Carlton
Time: 8pm / 10pm
Cost: Free!
