Cygnet Singers is an ANCA-affiliated, non-auditioned SATB choir of approximately
50 voices, based in the town of Cygnet in Tasmania’s Huon Valley.
Cygnet Singers was formed in 1984 and has maintained an uninterrupted schedule of rehearsals and performances ever since.
In that time, we have performed both small and medium scale works (see OUR HISTORY) representing a broad range of styles and musical periods.
We have an established tradition of joining forces with other musical groups, both choral and instrumental, to bring our audiences the widest possible variety of musical experiences.
Our current repertoire is of small-scale works, essentially songs and carols.
We sing in several languages (for example Hebrew, Italian, Welsh, Latin) and our repertoire ranges through time from the 16th century to the present day.
Our program draws from church music, art song, folk song and musical theatre.
We present public performances at regular intervals as well as singing at community events such as Relay for Life and the Australia Day Awards Ceremony and at Eldercare, the local area retirement and care facility.
COVID-19 safety: Cygnet Singers is committed to protect the health and safety of all members. Physical distancing, disinfection and other Public Health regulations, as appropriate, are enforced.
We welcome new members!
During 2020 we have been working with a reduced group because of the number restrictions on our space so new members have been unable to join with us.
We will recommence on Monday 8 February 2021 at 7.30. We’re a friendly and sociable bunch. Chatter in the room before and after rehearsal is always lively, and reaches deafening proportions during tea breaks.
We gather for pub meals at regular intervals, mark birthdays, and provide lavish afternoon teas for our audiences (and ourselves).
Rehearsals are held on Monday nights from 7.30 - 9.30, in the multi-purpose room at the Sports Centre on the Cygnet Primary School campus in Louisa Street,Cygnet.
All music and learning CDs are supplied free of charge.
Membership fees (currently $15.00 annually) are set at the AGM and provide insurance cover for members at rehearsals and performances.
A weekly contribution of $2.00 covers rent and other expenses.
