Performing is such a BUZZ. If you want to join us on stage, come to practice these next 3 Mondays and make sure you have audio files and lyrics to help you learn the songs in a hurry!! They aren't difficult and new people stand behind confident singers in the short term.

Singing ~ Learning ~ Healing ~ Bringing Cultures Together
Everyone is welcome to come and sing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island Songs - both old and new, in languages of the country including our local Noongar and English!
We practise on Monday nights in Forrestfield (excluding school and public holidays) and perform all over the Perth metro area and across WA when invited. Grab a USB of songs and your part on it, to speed up the learning and get you ready for performance because that's a real buzz.
Since 2006 we've been led by award-winning Aboriginal and TSI singers, songwriters and performers who generously bring songs- mostly contemporary - to the repertoire for all to share.
Currently, we sing songs brought to us by George Walley, Della Rae Morrison, Aunty Josie Boyle, Gina Williams, Sam Dinah, David Milroy, Karla Hart, Candice Lloyd and Delly Stokes. Kobi Morrison is our anchor man, on guitar with Tori Oakley occasionally on violin and Jo Randell on harmony support. In 2017 we're hoping to learn a couple of songs brought to us by Billie Court. We're always on the lookout for new songs and Aboriginal and/or Torres Strait Island performers happy to share them with the choir.
All ages, all voices, all backgrounds accepted. As Aunty Karl Mourach says to anyone who thinks they can't sing, 'That's why you need a choir!'.
See you soon! BOORDA!
