St Stephen's Church Choir is looking for additional singers. You must be able to read music (at least a little) and ideally can carry a tune (or better!). We are specifically looking for Men Who Sing, but also anyone who can sing tenor or bass.
Singing is a great way to relax while making beautiful music and making friends. Singing releases endorphins, does good things with your brain waves (I'm sure I read that) and is a great social activity. There's a bunch of research about how singing, especially singing with others, lowers the risk of depression and contributes to wellbeing.
This choir is great if you don't have lots of free time during your week. We rehearse and sing on Sunday mornings, leaving you the rest of Sunday to go and explore the Sydney and its wonders. It is an SATB choir (high women, low women, high men, low men) consisting of mostly volunteer choristers supported by paid scholars. It is a non-auditioning choir. You will be singing under the direction of Dr Huw Belling (which is enough reason on its own to join up!).
Current NSW Health Guidelines allow choirs of up to 30 people to make beautiful music together with appropriate physical distancing.
St Stephen's Uniting Church is located at 197 Macquarie Street Sydney, directly opposite NSW Parliament House and the State Library. We are 2 minutes' walk from Martin Place.
The Uniting Church is Australia is a wholly (and holy) Australian church, not existing anywhere else in the world. We are LGBTIQA inclusive (we love doing same-gender weddings) and pro-women (including ordaining them). We have a passion for social justice, including working together on climate change.
