MACQUARIE SINGERS has continued to rehearse over the two year of COVID. It has provided a wonderful way to enjoy singing together and maintaining our connection as a community choir.


Rehearsals will be held from Monday 14 February in the North Ryde Community Church, either in the garden or the church dependent upon the COVID situation. 

All are welcome to come to our rehearsals in person or to join in via Zoom.

Attendees will need to sign in using Services NSW QR and show proof of vaccination.


Come along and see what you think, no obligation. New members are welcomed throughout the year.

Thank you to all who performed and contributed to Macquarie Singers ‘Postcards from Europe’ concert.

The concert was a testament to community learning, singing and working together no matter the circumstances!

Workshop 2021 series

MUS has had the wonderful opportunity to hold three workshops in lockdown as well as one in the church garden in March! Heartfelt thanks to Sarah for the warm and professional way in which she conducts them. There were 95 people logged in to the final workshop. We always ask for feedback and suggestions for improvements and ideas for further workshops. One respondent wrote: Sarah’s presentation is so good and she teaches such excellent techniques for improving performance.  Her conducting skills really help to get the best from the singers.

For interested folk with Spotify, here’s a link to the recordings Sarah used in the workshop.

Macquarie Singers workshops are generously supported by the City of Ryde.

 San Antonio Nursing Home visit.

It was delightful to sing for the residents of San Antonio Nursing Home this June and especially to have them join with us in singing Verdi’s stirring Va Pensiero!


Macquarie Singers first performance for 2020 was carolling for the residents of Shalom Aged Care Centre. It was delightful to see smiling faces and share some Christmas joy with the residents who have not been able to have excursions or entertainment for much of the year.


Maquarie Singers relies upon support so that it can continue to provide the opportunity to learn beautiful music and provide high quality performances for our audiences, now and into the future.

We acknowledge the Darug people who are the traditional custodians of the land on which Macquarie Singers meet and whose cultures, songs and customs have nurtured and continue to nurture this land since the Dreamtime.

We pay our respects to Elders past, present and future.

MUS was established in 1967 at Macquarie University as a choir for students & staff, and members of the community around the University. In July 2017, the choir became an incorporated association known as Macquarie Singers Inc, still to be known affectionately as MUS.

We generally perform two major concerts per year and also appear at special events such as singing Christmas Carols at a local Hospital and aged care sentres, the  Carols on the Common and the North Ryde RSL club. More info? Click here…
