Canberra Shape Note Singers

This is an open singing session for all ages. A desire to sing is all that is required of participants. We sing from the The Denison version hymnal called The Sacred Harp. Loaner copies are available. We sing around a hollow square in 4 parts. Bass Tenor Alto and Trebles without instruments.

This style is considered an American Folk Gospel Tradition that is spreading around the world with each singing group independent of each other. The music notes are in the shape of a square, triangle, circle and diamond - this is why it is called shape note singing.

Cyrenes

The Cyrenes is an a cappella choir of women from Canberra. It was founded in 1989 and was one of the first women's community choirs in Canberra. The Cyrenes aim to create a safe, supportive and fun environment where women connect with each other through music.

Our underlying philosophy is that singing is part of the joy and well-being of life; that everyone can sing, and has something to contribute. We love creating beautiful and vibrant harmony. The Cyrenes have a repertoire of meaningful and powerful songs, including some songs just for fun!

Pop up Choir

Under the musical direction of Rachel Hore OAM, the Pop up choir is a big and gorgeous choir that welcomes new singers. Come along as a casual, or join up weekly to sing a fabulous repertoire of songs arranged and written by Rachel. We sing at concerts, street pop ups, festivals, conferences, market days and more.

The Song Company - Strange Fruit

Date: 
Thu, 13/10/2016 - 6:00pm

In 1939 Billie Holiday first sang the song Strange Fruit (actually written by a white Jewish teacher, Abel Meeropol) and brought to raw prominence the inequity of much of America's history.
She was afraid to sing it, even in the integrated, welcoming environment of Café Society in New York’s Greenwich
Village, and when she finished, there “wasn’t even a patter of applause....
Then a lone person began to clap nervously. Then suddenly everybody was clapping.” In this programme of blues, jazz,
