FREE SINGING WORKSHOP SERIES
Saturday September 7 saw the last of our free public workshops for the year with nearly 100 singers coming together to learn singing and breathing techniques culminating in a beautiful rendition of Bach’s Wie schön leuchtet der Morgenstern – the first time some of us had ever sung in German! – and a preview of the delights on offer at our December 7 Christmas concert.
Join us for our next free workshop on Saturday 7th March, 2020. Watch this space for details of next year’s workshops and concerts series or email firstname.lastname@example.org to join our mailing list.
Macquarie Singers was joined by 69 guests from across Sydney and beyond on Saturday 10 August to perform Vivaldi’s glorious Gloria under the baton of Dr Sarah Penicka-Smith.
Macquarie Chamber Orchestra performed Respighi’s Antique Dances and Airs for Lute and Albinoni/Giazotto’s beautiful Adagio in G Minor.
Thank you Sarah for an inspiring and joyous day of music making and performing!
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 an Opera House concert, or singing Christmas Carols at a local Hospital, the annual Carols on the Common and the North Ryde RSL club. More info? Click here…
MUS rehearsals are on Monday evenings, usually in the Robert Menzies College Chapel (on Macquarie University campus). For membership information contact us using the online form.
