Pop Up Choir – Canberra

Pop Up Choir is back singing in a safe, socially distanced way. We have split the choir into smaller groups, and have an INTRO CLASS on Tuesdays at 5:45pm, commencing 9 February 2021.

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.
