Adult Glee Club - Weekly Singing Group, GORDON

Adult Glee Club - Weekly Singing Group, GORDON
02/01/2018 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Do you enjoy singing? Or are you interested in trying a new activity that sees you do more than just shower singing and carpool karaoke?

Come and join this growing group of diverse adults who come together to sing various well-known songs while having a good time. Our Gordon based Adult Glee Club has mums from the Ryde and Northern Districts areas participating, and we’re always on the look out for new members to join our weekly singing group. Expect to sing anything from pop to rock, musical theatre, golden oldies and event the odd current hit.

There’s no auditions, no experience needed. Just a willingness to give it a try and have a good time while doing so. It’s so healthy for the body and mind to sing regularly and lowers stress levels and anxiety. The people are welcoming and if you’ve never sung in a choir or group before, don’t be scared. Our choir directors are very welcoming and will ensure you improve over time (even if you think you can’t).
