Singers of all experience levels are coming together to learn how to belt out a tune in harmony as a new choir called the Bundaberg Voice Collective takes shape.
The community orientated choir is giving locals a new set of lungs as director Christie McLucas provides a fast-paced, fun, yet focused learning environment.
It was a full house at the very first meeting of Bundaberg Voice Collective when those who love to sing met at Oodies Café for the initial catch up.
Christie is an old hat when it comes to the local music scene as she is also a pianist, music teacher, conductor and all-round entertainer.
“We had 43 people attend on the first night, I was hoping for 30 so it was pretty fantastic to see the interest,” Christie said.
“I have been doing a lot of stuff in town for many, many years, so people know my name which is helpful, and they know I just like to make things fun.
“Over the last year people have been at me to start a choir and I guess it just seems like the right time now.”
Bundaberg Voice Collective caters to all experience levels and is open to community members 18 years and older.
“We're a choir that has everything!” Christie said.
“The best songs, the best musicians, the best company, and the best opportunity for your voice to grow.
“Whether you want to hone your skills or grow some, the Bundaberg Voice Collective is the setting to do that.”
Christie said each week would be different with other local musicians popping in to showcase their talent.
“It’s so good to roll with talented people,” Christie said.
“Let’s just say I know a lot of fantastic artists in Bundaberg and some owe me a favour or two, so I’m really looking forward to what the future of BVC will bring.
“Seriously – it’s more fun when you are singing in a group too.”
