Choir Of High Hopes Hobart Inc.

The Journey so far ...

The Choir was formed in October 2007 by Jenny Chapman, in
response to the TV documentary ‘Choir of Hard Knocks’. Jenny met
Jonathon Welch who introduced her to RecLink, the organisation
behind the now famous, Choir of Hard Knocks, and Jenny found
many willing volunteers who helped her establish and run the Choir.
As a consequence of this performance, the Choir has received
invitations to perform for the rest of 2008-2011.

The Choir of High Hopes first performed Christmas Carols in the
Elizabeth St Mall in Hobart, just six weeks after their first rehearsal (thereafter, practically every year).
After a break over that Christmas the Choir began rehearsing in
earnest for its launch concert in the Theatre Royal on 8th April 2008.
This sell-out concert included Jonathon Welch as guest artist and the
Launceston Choir of High Hopes.

State-wide performances followed every year since, where funds allowed.

Current Music Director: Eleanor Webster.

In 2017 we celebrate our 10th year to a great fanfare.

Where we rehearse:

GA Wood Hall, behind Scots-Memorial Uniting Church
29 Bathurst Street, Hobart

Every Tuesday from 1:00pm to 3:30pm

The kitchen is open from 12:30pm for a "welcome cuppa" and a
light lunch is provided after the rehearsal.

Everyone welcome.
