WELCOME TO THE U3A CHOIR PAGE

Due to many interested visitors who have joined u3a and become Choristers the Choir is now at capacity.

Practices start on Tuesday 2nd February 2021 finish on Tuesday 30th November 2021.

The U3A Choir began in 2012, after an interesting free U3A Lecture on the results of research showing the health and social benefits of group singing. Which over the years we have found to be very true having made many friends and also seeing the benefit of providing concerts to the Community, especially within the Aged Care community.

The Choir meets every Tuesday at the Auditorium Yokine Baptist Church 50 Frape Ave, Yokine. The venue is open at 9:30am with practice starting at 10am with a 15min refreshment break at 11:15am and practice concludes at 12pm.

To join there is an annual membership cost together with a weekly practice fee, the venue has free underground parking and if needed public transport is located close by.

There is no audition or requirement to be able to read music and we encourage anyone interested to visit and join in a couple of practices first.  Please notify us prior to coming to visit and it would be appreciated if you could make a donation of $3 towards refreshments.

Please contact Dinah 0408 936 737, jackanddinah@optusnet.com.au if you have any further questions.

Last year we welcomed a new Musical Director Richard Braham and are pleased to welcome him back again this year, looking forward to singing again with our friends and also welcoming visitors and possible new Choristers.

After an unusual year with a few months learning and trying out practicing via Zoom which (kept us in touch, but not necessarily in tune) before things eased up somewhat and we managed to find a new larger venue to practice in, which enabled us to practice with “social distancing”, we decided to have our end of year lunch at the Crown again as was enjoyed by everyone last year.

As we have had several Choristers who for various reasons resigned from the Choir at the end of last year, one of whom not only a Chorister but the Chairperson of Choir Committee for the last 4 years & will be greatly missed, we put together a framed collage for her which is mostly of our lunch in November 2020 this includes a photo of the last concert we did in November 2019 at Gwelup also a group of us with Richard at keyboard, during a practice at the end of 2020.

Under normal circumstances as it is part of our ethos to present several free concerts at Community events and Aged Care homes, unfortunately last year we were unable to but are hoping that this year it will be possible to do this once more.
