Performances by community choirs and small acappella groups for special occasions such as weddings and parties plus Chrismas events and local festivals. We work in Sydney and suburbs. Styles include pop, jazz, gospel, folk, world music, classical and Christmas music.
After consulting with the singers in my choirs as to their availbility for a particular date, time and location, we can generally provide choirs of between 20 and 30 singers who can present a high quality choral performance of songs from our repertoire. Each of my 5 choirs has up to 30 pieces of music in their current repertoire which can be prepared and presented for specific types of occasion: weddings, birthday parties, festivals and Christmas caroling. Depending on the occasion, the choirs can be onsite from 1 - 3 hours and sing continuously for 25 - 30 minutes before breaks. They are always professionally attired and do have some flexibility depending on the type of performance. Some music is performed 'acappella' - unaccompanied, while other pieces require a guitar or piano accompaniment, provided by a group member. Songs which are not in our repertoire can also be included. However, extra fees and charges are levied for the time taken to research the music, write arrangements and learn them. These issues can be discussed before bookings are confirmed.
We strongly recommend that all communication with Choirs for Hire be kept within CrowdPleaser's secure quoting and booking platform. We can only guarantee deposits paid through the CrowdPleaser website. You should also make sure their quote includes their cancellation and payment terms.
Choirs don't do well in outdoor spaces in the sun for long periods of time. Sheltered areas are better. Open spaces often require a PA system to be provided as voices disappear in a vacuum in an open area. Halls and churches which have a natural resonance are best for choirs. Sometimes these also work better with a PA system. Our choirs can provide members who are willing to meet with the event organisers to discuss the details in order to provide the best possible experience for celebrations and other performances.
