Become a member

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 only with prior notice. During 2022, you must contact the Membership Officer at to arrange this before you come because of COVID protocols. 

Come along and see us perform or have a look at some YouTube clips of our performances. The choir has produced a cassette and two CDs – have a listen to all our recorded songs. Or visit our Facebook page.
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.

During 2022, we will be following Covid safe protocols as required by our venue. These protocols include:
  • register your attendance using the CBR Check-in app (this is now optional)
  • mask wearing is optional
  • rehearsal is from 7.30-9.30pm
  • we have a tea break midway through; please bring your own mug
  • seating arrangement with chairs at least 2 metres apart and use of only one chair during the rehearsal
  • no sharing of music, pencils etc
  • use of natural air flow as much as possible
