All interested singers are most welcome to come along to visit our rehearsals. Please let us know that you’re coming and we’ll be ready to make you feel at home.
Joining Us to Sing
All singers are welcome – female or male. Our singing is as a gentle blessing, providing ease and comfort – not a performance – however we request that you’re able to hold a melody as we sing a capella (without accompaniment) and many of our songs have harmony parts and are in rounds. So if you can carry a tune, blend your voice with others and sing with kind intent, we’d welcome you, your heart and your precious time.
Rehearsals are currently the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of the month at our Auburn home base commencing at 7.30pm.
On the 2nd Wednesday evening of the month we endeavor to set aside to sing for those in need – we also make every attempt to be available for referrals that may include other days and times.
We also have other days we sing during the daytime and as these can vary, please look at the schedule which will list the days and times.
The choir sometimes break for School term holidays.
We begin our rehearsals with a gathering ritual – usually in the form of a meditation and/or vocal toning. This helps bring a calm and focussed presence to our practice together, and for our work at the bedside.
Exercises in vocal play, listening and harmonising follow – to help strengthen our voices, and to align with the other voices around us.
Then we settle in to singing our repertoire – expanding on all of the above, and often including singing to each other to generate our understanding of being sung to, and developing our intent as singers in a Threshold context.

Members’ fees are $30 per term, with payment at the start of each term (four terms per year). For those joining mid-term, payment is needed only for the remaining weeks of term. These fees contribute to the cost of our rehearsal space.
We also have a once only joining fee of $10, which covers expenses including the provision of sheet music.
We hope to keep costs as low as we can. Please speak with us if you’d like to join but have financial difficulties and we’ll come to some arrangement.
