Hamish and the Star of Wonder
This year our Christmas concert takes a very unusual turn and becomes more of a
production! What if 2000 years ago the star had appeared all over the world? This particular
story of the journey to the nativity begins in Scotland and instead of the wise men our
pilgrim is Hamish, a highland steer, following the Star of Wonder till he gets to Bethlehem.

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.
We welcome new members!
We’re a friendly and sociable bunch. Chatter in the room before and after rehearsal is always
We gather for pub meals at regular intervals, mark birthdays, and often provide lavish
afternoon teas for our audiences (and ourselves).
Rehearsals are held on Monday nights from 7.30 - 9.00, 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 $20.00 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.
