OUR CURRENT ACTIVITIES
With our Christmas break behind us, we are now preparing for our 2024 concerts. Over the last couple of weeks we have been rehearsing for our first concert which will be on 5 March at Aminya Village, the Baptist aged care village in Baulkham Hills.
The Ku-ring-gai Male Choir has been active in Sydney’s Northern suburbs since 1946, when a group of ex-servicemen got together for singing and companionship. We have now been performing for some 77 years, and are one of the oldest choirs in Sydney. As well as our public performances, we take our music to many of the retirement homes in our northern suburbs and beyond.
We are honoured to have the Governor of NSW, Her Excellency, the Hon. Margaret Beazley (A.C, K.C) and Mr Wilson as Joint Vice-Regal Patrons as well as the Hon. Paul Fletcher, MP (Federal Member for Bradfield) and the Hon. Matt Cross (Member for Davidson) as Friends of the Choir.
Our choir is a longstanding member of the Male Choirs of Australia Association (MCAA).
Our choir is a charity and is registered as such with the Australian Charities and Not-for-profits Commission. All donations to the choir are tax deductible. To make a donation, please get in touch with the Choir Secretary (Ken Wade 0408 644 063).
Our Choir performs at retirement villages in the wider Ku-Ring-Gai area. All funds raised at these performances go to The National Braille Music Camp which assists blind children performing music and to StreetWork helping ‘at risk’ young people.
In the Song Centre we provide some background to many of the songs in our repertoire, along with lyrics and examples from our past performances and others on YouTube. This is a good resource for checking out any songs you may be interested in.
