What’s On

Sending big love to all my singing community! We will be back on board with all of our events as soon as it is safe to do so.

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

Spend a joyful weekend immersed in beautiful harmonies and rhythm in the bush, the mountains or by the sea.  Or, if a weekend is not long enough, come along on a tour and experience the joy of singing in some amazing locations around the world. Or come along to a choir performance.  Read on for details of what’s coming up.

Singing Holidays


Singing and walking in the Kosciuzko National Park

Charlotte Pass NSW

31 January – 7 February 2021

After such a difficult year for all of us, I invite you to restore and replenish yourself in a week of singing and walking in the beautiful Australian Alps. Join Rachel for daily singing workshops (small and Covid safe) followed by stunning Alpine walks and beautiful home cooked meals in the Lodge at the end of the day. Staff on this week also include Jo Cresswell and Dave O’Neill who I run the French Alps walking tours with. Jo has been visiting this region for decades and has great local knowledge.
This tour is a small group (max 20 singers) and limited to NSW and ACT residents only.

Singing and walking tour in the French Alps

21 August – 1 September 2021

Join me for 12 delightful days exploring and singing in the magnificent French Alps. Our walking guides are Jo Cresswell and Dave O’Neill (who are both fabulous musicians too). This will be my second triip to France with Jo and Dave, and truly, we had the most most fantastic time. We are based near the UNICEF world heritage listed town of Briancon, in southeastern France near the Italian border. The walking is so spectacular. We will be joined at times with singers from local French choirs.

This tour is a small group (max 13 singers) so please get your deposit in early if you are interested.
