Choirs are springing up all over Melbourne and Newport is no exception. The Newport Community Choir started up in October 2008 and has been going strong since then, rehearsing regularly and performing at local venues.
See our fab videos below.
Come along, join us and experience the fun of singing with others in a supportive environment. There are no auditions, just join in and have a go! There is a place in this choir for everyone – whether you have a little experience as a singer, a lot or none at all. We perform regularly at NFFC events and other community gatherings..
Since first joining a choir in 1999, Alan has sung in choirs large and small and has led singing workshops for schools and festivals. Along with his musical skills, Alan has developed a passion for choral singing and a firm belief that singing is for everyone.
