What’s On

Sending big love to all of my singing community!

I am so very happy to be back singing with my choir in Canberra and leading workshops again.  Read on for details of what’s coming up in 2023.

I would so love you to join me at one of my Singing Workshops or on a Singing Holiday.

Draw while listening to the Pop Up Choir, singing songs that will leave your toes tapping and heart full.

Singing on Dyarubbin Shores

Richmond, NSW

Scheduling of this event is on hold due to the repeated flooding in the Hawkesbury region and its deep impact on our event teachers and organisers. Please consider donating to Stacy’s Flood Recovery fundraiser here.

Two days of joyful singing on Darug country with Aunty Jacinta Tobin, Stacy-Jane Etal, Rachel Hore and Suze Pratten.

The weekend features singing in Darug language with Jacinta and Stacy-Jane as well as acapella songs and harmonies with Rachel and Suze. We will be singing on Darug Country, close to the shores of Dyarubbin.

Dyarubbin is the Darug word for the Hawkesbury River.
