The choir currently consists of approximately 50 members of varying experience and abilities and we welcome new recruits. We aim to enjoy our singing and increase our appreciation of a wide range of music.

Our repertoire includes ballads, folk songs from many cultures, classical works by Bach, Handel,Verdi and other well-known composers, songs from the Broadway shows and popular modern pieces. We sing both four-part and two-part works. [SATB - soprano, alto, tenor, bass]

The choir meets on Tuesday mornings, 10.00 to 11.45, at the Camberwell Civic Centre. A mid-rehearsal morning tea break each week enables members to socialise and get to know each other. We ask for regular weekly attendance whenever possible. This is important in building individual improvement and developing the choir’s overall musicianship. We ask you to let us know about absences.

The choir gives one or two main public concerts a year as well as occasional smaller presentations. (A standard dress is expected for these.)


Membership of the Choir requires membership of U3A Hawthorn and enrolment in the U3A Hawthorn Course MUS002 - Choir of U3A Hawthorn.

There are no entry auditions so you can enrol in MUS002 and come along.

We aim to enjoy our music and strive for a high standard.

For any enquiries contact U3A Hawthorn - see Contacts Page for details.
