MACQUARIE SINGERS WELCOMES NEW MEMBERS

Come along and see what you think, no obligation. New members are welcomed throughout the year.
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!
CAROL SINGING FOR SHALOM AGED CARE
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…
