Welcome to our choir

2021 has been a difficult year for the Choir.  After many months in 2020 of rehearsals using Zoom, we were able to come together for in-person rehearsals and our new accompanist, Hank Xiang, commenced supporting the Choir in March 2021.  At that stage we were hopeful of performing later in the year at some of the retirement villages at which we regularly sing and participating in the MCAA Festival of Male Choirs scheduled for late October.  To reintroduce ourselves to audiences we arranged to present two concerts in June and July at local churches, with Anita Kyle and Hank as guest soloists.

However, the COVID-19 coronavirus raised its unwelcome head again in late June.  After the first successful church concert we had returned to Zoom rehearsals and no likelihood of in-person performances for the rest of the year.  The MCAA Festival was cancelled until planning could occur with some reasonable certainty the festival can be staged successfully.

During 2021, we were delighted to welcome the Governor of NSW and Mr Wilson as Joint Vice-Regal Patrons of the Choir. In addition, the Hon. Jonathan O’Dea, State member for Davidson in NSW and the Hon. Paul Fletcher MP, Federal Member for Bradfield, accepted our invitation to be Friends of the KMC.

We are looking forward to getting back together in-person in 2022 when hopefully in-person choir rehearsals and concerts are permitted, albeit in a COVID-safe way.

About us

Our philosophy

Concerts

The successful Ku-Ring-Gai Male Choir is one of the oldest performing male voice choirs in Australia.

Founded by ex-servicemen following the Second World War, the choir has been in harmony since 1946 and today has 40 performing members.

The choir is currently under the musical direction of Dr Paul Whiting and accompanied by Hank Xiang.

The choir would like to acknowledge the generous support of Ku-ring-gai Council.

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 but would be helpful.

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

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. 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 at info@kuringgaimalechoir.org.au
