The U3A Choir began in 2012, as a result of the research showing the health and social benefits of group singing. It meets in the Guild Room, in the basement of the Wesley Church, Cnr Hay and William Streets in Perth CBD. Entrance on the right hand side from William Street. It meets every Tuesday (except the first Tuesday in the month) from 10.00 am to 12.30 pm, with a refreshment break at around 11.30 am. There is no audition and visitors can attend two practices before deciding whether to join the Choir formally. There is an annual membership cost and a weekly practice fee.

Activities in 2018

The choir gave a return concert at the Aegis Alfred Carson, aged care facility in Claremont on the 30th October. There was a varied repertoire and we were well received by the audience. “One Fine Day” from Madame Butterfly (performed by one of the choristers) and piano pieces by Mendelssohn played by a young music student added to the enjoyment of the afternoon’s program.  The choir was grateful to receive a donation toward its running costs.

An end of year Christmas function was held on the 28th November at the Café Hyatt.

Practices will re-commence on the 12th February 2019.
