The chamber choir Women of the Sun is relaunching in 2019.
We already have a solid core of dedicated women that travel from as far away as Brisbane, Woodford, Witta, Cooroy and Noosa and we're looking to increase our numbers!
We are seeking new singers 17 years and above that want to be part of a supportive virtuosic women's ensemble of 24-32 singers based on the Sunshine Coast and working toward presenting our repertoire outside of our region to Brisbane and beyond.
You will be an experienced choral singer dedicated to performing brilliant music and committed to attaining the highest possible rehearsal and performance standards. You will be at least a fair sight-reader or someone capable of learning music rapidly and are self-motivated.
Singers should be prepared to devote not only rehearsal time to the creation of music but also to work diligently on their own or in small ad hoc ensembles and sections if necessary to make the music as beautiful as it can be.
In 2019 we will be presenting two programs. The first will be a general program covering a wide range of musical periods and styles including the works of Hassler, Schubert, Brahms, Casals and others including Gyorgy Orban's Mass Number 6. The second concert will be a presentation of English choral music featuring Britten's popular 'Ceremony of Carols' and Holst's ethereal 'Hymns of the Rig Veda'.
Rehearsals are held Friday evenings from 6:45 P.M. to 9:15 P.M. at Siena College in Sippy Downs and close to public transport.
If you are interested in joining us to build a noteworthy choral organisation here on the Sunshine Coast please contact Beth Fitzpatrick on 0425 865 116 or Mitch Meyer on 0432 901 131.
