If you love to sing and can hold a tune then Rhythms of the Reef Chorus could be the perfect social singing group for you.
The long-running organisation is looking for new members, especially those of the younger generation, to take up an interest and join the female chorus group.
Rhythms of the Reef Chorus team coordinator Christine Bush said the group had recently reformed and they were excited to be at rehearsals and singing at events such as Bundaberg Regional Council’s Australian Citizenship Ceremonies.
“Like many groups, it was hit and miss through Covid, but now we are back and will be performing at the July citizenship ceremony,” Christine said.
“We are a four-part harmony acapella group; the four parts are lead, bass, baritone, and tenor.
“There’s a position for all types of singers!”
Christine said the Rhythms of the Reef Chorus currently had 13 members in the group with the call out for more women to join.
“We don’t have many young ladies in the group at present,” she said.
“As an aging chorus, we would love to see more young females take an interest.
“There’s a big range of music we sing and we’re introducing more modern songs to attract the younger crowd, we sing pretty much anything – well, not rap or anything like that!
“If they can hold a tune then we will find somewhere for them in one of the four parts of pure harmony.”
Christine said the group would learn songs with music, but when it came to performing the use of “pure harmony” was all that was needed.
She said the group offered a welcoming space for those who loved to sing.
“It’s not all hard work, really, we are a big family,” she said.
“We’re also looking for a musical director to join us too.”
