The choir welcomes any woman who wants to sing. Our current membership includes women from their late teens through to their 80s and from a range of backgrounds and experiences. There are no auditions, and no previous singing or performance experience is necessary.
Prospective members are invited to come to a rehearsal or to seek further information. During 2021, you must contact theMembership Officer at email@example.com to arrange this before you come because of COVID protocols.
Prospective members who come to a rehearsal will be given limited access to the members-only part of the Cyrenes’ website. After a two-week introductory period during which a prospective member can determine whether they wish to join the choir, new members are then expected to pay the annual membership fee and fees for the remainder of the term in which they join.
The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7.30 to 9.00pm at St Ninians Uniting Church, 150 Brigalow St (corner of Brigalow and Mouat Sts), Lyneham. View the Google map directions.
