“Learning & having a good time together while creating music that inspires joyful emotion”

Sunshine Coast Choir Musical Director and Choreographer

About SCCS

Since its inception in 1994, the Sunshine Coast Choral Society has impressed audiences with an eclectic program of concerts. Every member reaps the benefit of singing in a choir as we sing, learn, laugh and perform together.

The scientists say that singing is very beneficial to your health and wellbeing, but you don’t need science to know that being part of a choir is fun and fulfilling, and being in the audience will also uplift you and bring you joy.

JOIN US…

Why not join the Sunshine Coast Choral Society? Our choral year begins in February however, please feel free to contact us at any time if you are interested in joining our choir.

We rehearse each Wednesday evening at 7.00 at the Lakeshore Community Church of Christ, 1 Lakeshore Avenue, Buderim. It’s easy to find and there’s plenty of parking. Early birds start arriving soon after 6.30 to socialise, gossip and help put chairs out.

Some choristers come from just around the corner, but may travel from as far as Beerwah, Noosa and Maleny, some car-pooling.

There are often committee members on hand at arrival, but any choir member will cheerfully help you find your way around.

If we are starting work on a new performance, the librarians will be nearby distributing the scores. A small fee is usually charged for the hire of the music.

Sunshine Coast Choir Rehearsal Location

Singing begins promptly at 7.00 as our inspirational conductor, Adrian, starts us off with some fun warm up activities. Rehearsals are hard exhilarating work, punctuated with lots of laughter. Even the most experienced singers feel uplifted and supported by the camaraderie and by Adrian’s kind, positive approach.

All the effort and endless repetition pay off when finally, a section comes together beautifully earning Adrian’s beaming smile and ultimate compliment: ‘That was soooo cool!’

Rehearsal usually finishes around 9.00. Expect to be deliciously tired, yet buzzing so much that it takes it a while to get to sleep that night.  Come for one rehearsal and you’ll be hooked for life.

“The woods would be quiet if no bird sang but the one that sang best’ ” by Henry Van Dyke.
