Pop Up Choir – Canberra

Pop Up Choir is back singing face-to-face from Tuesday November 9th and Thursday November 11th. We are taking no new members this term due to COVID limits on choir numbers. New members are most welcome to join us again next year.  Send Rachel an expression of interest to join via the contact form

A huge thanks to my wonderful choir for supporting me during lockdown via our zoom sessions. It’s been a big experiment, that at times, actually really worked! I am so looking onward to singing together again.

Pop Up Choir is a great bunch of people coming together to sing a great bunch of songs, led by choral director Rachel Hore OAM.

You don’t need to audition to come to the Pop Up Choir. Take the step and plunge in. It’s fun, moving and inspiring. New singers are always welcome.

We perform at various events in and around Canberra. We have sung at the High Court of Australia, the Museum of Australian Democracy, Parliament House and ANU –  as well as various pop-up performances at places like the National Folk Festival, Majors Creek Festival, conferences, fetes and markets.

When permitted to gather face to face, Pop Up Choir follows the ACT Health Guidelines for groups and choirs. We will be singing using the 4 square metre rule, with masks.
