“People who love singing in a non critical environment, who love travel with like minded people and who seek friendship and fun.”
Sing Australia at Floriade
For 20 years Sing Australia has helped thousands of people in the community from all walks of life and demographics in various ways right across Australia.
Starting in Canberra, Sing Australia has 140 groups and over 4,500 members; six of these groups are located in Canberra and Queanbeyan.
We apply an inclusive approach to singing. Everyone regardless of how well they sing can be a member. Our music covers as wide a range of styles and tastes in music as possible. We sing as widely as we can in the community from formal events to casual performances in a nursing home.
On average we sing at approximately 1800 performances a year throughout Australia. Our repertoire assists in making all of these rewarding. We provide singing tours around Australia and overseas to connect with other members. We have sung at amazing venues – Anzac day services at Gallipoli, an international peace forum in Vancouver; at Long Tan; Hell Fire Pass, outside the Kremlin; the Taj Mahal; Every two years we tour Italy and sing at the most spectacular of places like the Trevi Fountain, The Milan Cathedral, La Scala Opera House foyer, – all impromptu and fun.
We have annual National Gatherings where up to 1000 participants come from around Australia to reunite with new found friends. We have regional gatherings throughout the year.
For 26 years in Canberra, Sing Australia has had an involvement with the annual Rotary Seniors concert and the Annual Lanyon Carols and for 20 years for The Legacy Anzac Concert. Since 1989 Sing Australia has had continual involvement with the Australia Day celebrations in Canberra.
So in a generic sense the ‘someone’ who we help in the community through all this involvement represent thousands of people. They are people who love singing in a non critical environment, who love travel with like minded people and who seek friendship and fun.
