The Canberra Swiss choir ‘Crèmeschnitte Chörli’ is a lively group of people who sing for fun. We sing traditional songs in our national languages. The choir performs regularly at Swiss Club functions, but we also reach out into the community and perform at nursing homes and at festive events. From time to time we perform at concerts with the German and Austrian choirs.
Rehearsals are held twice a month, on the second Tuesday and the fourth Tuesday of each month from 6:00pm to 7:30pm at the ‘Keller’ of the Harmonie German Club Narrabundah. New singers are welcome. Auditions are not required.
For details of Choir activities check the post ‘Choir News’ and the ‘Upcoming Events’ list.
For further information you may contact the coordinator Regula Neilson.
