Who We Are

We're a group of women 18 years and over who love music. We're passionate about choral singing, enjoy a challenge and take pleasure in performing for and entertaining others. We do not audition for the choir and while some members read music this is not a prerequisite.  

We usually sing in 3 parts (SSA) and are led by our highly accomplished musical director and piano accompanist. We raise funds through membership fees, concerts and grants and we endeavour to assist a charity each year

At the end of each term we meet socially for dinner and celebrate our achievements.


A dedicated committee oversees the day-to-day management of the choir.

Cece is a multidisciplinary pianist in the fields of Classical and Jazz music, who has conducted and accompanied theatre productions, choirs, jazz bands and smaller ensembles.

She has accompanied and sung with the Bunbury Young Voices (2009 - 2016), and the Bunbury Catholic College Choir (2012 - 2017) as well as various instrumental ensembles at the University of Western Australia.

Cece has a particular interest in the music of Nikolai Kapustin as well as other Classical/Jazz crossover pianists, and ihas performed such repertoire over her whole life.
