'LAST-SATURDAY' BIG SINGS 2020




The 'Last-Saturday Big Sing' series has been created for people who:



  • Are short on time and can't commit to a year of regular choir rehearsals, but who still want to sing;

  • Are feeling sad that they missed out on joining the Sing For Your Life! Choir in 2019 or 2020 because it grew SO BIG!;

  • Are keen to try singing in harmony with others but not feeling ready to join a choir;

  • Are already in a choir but just want more, more, more singing; or

  • Enjoy singing without any pressure to perfect or perform.


As the name suggests, these Big Sing sessions will be held on the last Saturday in eight different months in 2020:



  • Saturday 29 February

  • Saturday 28 March

  • Saturday 30 May

  • Saturday 27 June

  • Saturday 29 August

  • Saturday 26 September

  • Saturday 31 October

  • Saturday 28 November


Each Big Sing session will follow the same format:



  • Tickets are $25 ($20 concession) per person, per session.

  • Sessions will all be 10.00am - 1.00pm (doors open from 9.30am).

  • Every session will be at the Bellerive Uniting Church, cnr Cambridge Road and York Street, Bellerive.

  • We'll sing at least three songs at each session - new songs, old songs, different languages, greatest hits - whatever takes Jane's fancy for each session. Songs will be a cappella (no instruments), will feature great harmonies, and will be taught 'by ear' - there will be NO sheet music involved. Some of the songs will be gospel, though there is no religious element to these sessions.

  • Each Big Sing includes a teabreak (teas/coffee/biscuits included in ticket price).

  • No experience is required, and there is no performance element to these sessions.

  • Each session is limited to 70 participants. Online ticket sales will close at 6.00pm the night before a session (earlier if sold out), with cash-only door sales available from 9.30am on the day if we're not sold out.

  • Sessions are recommended for ages 13+. Under-18s must be accompanied by a paying parent/guardian.

  • Tickets are non-refundable and can't be transferred to another session date - but a ticket CAN be presented at the door by someone else (i.e. a ticket can be given away or sold by you if you find you can't make it to a booked session).
