Bringing Singing to the Community

After many months of planning, recording, emailing and editing,  Brunswick Women’s Choir is very proud to launch ‘Bringing Singing to the Community’ – a project funded by VicHealth!

Free online workshops with downloadable sheet music, audio files and links to YouTube videos…

We hope these workshops will enable people in regional and remote areas, and anyone who can’t participate in a community choir because of their personal health, disability or financial circumstances, to access the benefits of group singing.

Our sincere gratitude to Lou Bennett for the invaluable part she plays in the workshop of her song Manubak Garra. Thanks also to Stephen Joyce and his colleagues at RMIT for the recording and uploading of these workshops to our website and to VicHealth for the funding to make all this possible. 

Enjoy!

Recording In Full Swing!

Recording for our 4th CD is in full swing with six songs ‘in the bag’ and many more to come as we clock up the recording sessions throughout 2011. We hope to launch this new CD early next year and will keep you posted!

Alongside this we are also gearing up to record both sound and vision of four songs being taught to us by our director Cathy Nixon. These will be uploaded to our website together with written music and ‘part’ recordings so that people who access our website can use this to teach or learn these songs. This is a project funded by Vic Health aimed at providing online resources for people who wish to enjoy the benefits of group singing but may not have access to songs and ways of learning them.
