Rhythm & Song Community Choir is for singers of all stripes and abilities. There are no auditions. The ability to read music is NOT required. There are no formal performances. Any singing we do at community events is voluntary. Weekly sessions are designed for you to sing a lot, sing to develop your voice and listening skills, sing for an overall sense of well-being, and sing to connect with others. Songs come from world, folk, pop, gospel and roots traditions. Lyrics are provided when necessary. The approach is focused, yet playful. We laugh. A lot.

This summer I have witnessed many great musical moments. I was delighted to lead two community singing workshops at Stewart Park Festival in Perth. Despite the incredible heat, new and familiar singers came out to sing in harmony with one another. I also attended Blue Skies Music Festival in Clarendon, which always offers many opportunities to sing, play music, hear new music, visit with old friends, and make new ones. What I noticed this year was that many of the performers on the main stage asked the audience to sing along with them at different points in their performances. Three thousand music lovers singing together, how much fun is that?
