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!

Wine, Women and Song Wins Hearts at Stones of the Yarra Valley

 

Sunday’s performance was nothing short of stunning! 

The setting was amazing, the acoustics perfect and as a group you were so tight and in sync it made for heavenly appreciation. Whatever you have been doing, keep doing it. The enthusiasm and the professionalism of the group were palpable and the quality of the sound you produced makes me wait with anticipation for your next album release. 

Yours sincerely, Janet Vague
