The Canberra Swiss choir ‘Crèmeschnitte Chörli’ is a lively group of people who sing for fun. We are a mixed-voice choir (with parts for soprano, alto, tenor and bass), singing traditional songs in our four 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 Canberra’s German and Austrian choirs.

At this time we would like to officially welcome the latest member of our choir, Annabelle Schweizer. She joined us last year, has a wonderful voice and promises to bring a new dimension to our performances. 

Annabelle Schweizer

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. 

For details of Choir activities check the post ‘Choir News’ and the ‘Upcoming Events’ list.

For further information please contact the coordinator Cathy Schmidli on 0402 584 194. 
If you are interested to join the Swiss choir, please speak with Cathy. She will provide you with the necessary details.
