Changes for 2019

Welcome back for 2019! The Choir enjoyed some time off over Christmas and the New Year, and we have returned refreshed and ready to enjoy another year of harmony.

After farewelling our long-standing accompanist, Grace Edwards-Barnetson, at the end of 2018, the Choir is delighted to announce that Louise Scott has agreed to join us as our regular accompanist. Louise is a very talented musician, having graduated from the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, studied in London and worked in the USA culminating as Professor of Accompaniment at DePauw University (Indiana). Louise has performed with many talented instrumentalists and singers including Warwick Fyfe, Fiona Zielger, Deborah De Graaff, Elizabeth Campbell, Margaret Plummer and Michael Lewis. In 2018 she founded Australia's newest art song organisation, An Die Musik, and she often works with talented instrumentalists from Sydney Grammar School.

In 2019 the Choir will once again have a full schedule of concerts, which will be announced shortly. We are also keen to hear from prospective new members - please contact us via the email shown on our Contact Us page.

Our Philosophy

The members of Ku-Ring-Gai Male Choir are brought together with the common desire of making music, coupled with social interaction.

We are a non-audition choir and new members are always welcome; we do not ask that you sing like a professional, and the ability to read music is not required.

All that is required is a love of music and the commitment to attend the majority of rehearsals.

Join the Choir


The Ku-Ring-Gai Male choir has a full annual concert schedule held at retirement villages around the North Shore, with a number of special concerts that are held in larger venues and that attract hundreds of spectators.

All retirement village concerts are conducted in aid of our supported charities, further details of which can be found here. The choir is always interested in talking to prospective venues; if you would like to talk to us about the choir performing at your venue please email us.
