Mona Vale Women's A Cappella

No experience or audition is necessary

It is assumed that while some new members may have dabbled in music all their lives in some capacity, others will embrace singing for the first time in this new choir. Reading music is not necessary because music can be learned by ear. The choir is open to all ages and experiences and is non-auditioned.


Whatever kind of music you like, you’ll probably experience it with this new choir. Drawing from a wide range of styles, across the centuries, from classical to jazz and pop, gospel to world music – there will be something for everyone. And there will be regular performances!


We will rehearse every Monday evening during school terms at Seventh Day Adventist Church*, 28-30 Vineyard Street, Mona Vale, from 7:30 to 9:30 including a provided tea break. Our first rehearsal will be on 29th April.

*While the choir will from time to time sing religious repertoire, it is not affiliated with a church and is essentially secular.

Fees – and what you get!

Because we all have busy lives, you only need to commit to one term at a time, with the set fee of $160 per term (which could range from 9 to 11 rehearsals plus any concerts we organise). This fee includes your music, MP3 recordings (download and burn to CD or put on your MP3 player/iPod!) and most importantly tea and biccies in our break.

We are a community choir and never forget that the first word – community – is also the most important. We make the best music we can, but we always make sure we’re having fun and enjoying one another’s company more than anything else. One of your first jobs will be helping choose the name of this new choir!

This new Mona Vale Women’s choir is a Hummingsong Community Choir. Hummingsong Community Choirs are run by Anna Humberstone. Existing Hummingsong choirs include Senisuara Women’s A Cappella who rehearse in Gordon, and Maribella Women’s A Cappella who rehearse in Mosman. Each of these choirs runs on the same philosophy, as outlined above. We also raise money for women’s charities and seek to commission female composers to write or arrange new music for our choirs. Massed choral events allow members to mingle in a bigger group and work with professional vocal ensembles such as The Idea of North.
