Kick back with a glass of wine and enjoy singing along to well-known tunes led by popular Opera Queensland artists.
Led by Queensland Baritone, musical director, arranger, compère and teacher extraordinaire Jason Barry-Smith, this fun evening of informal music-making will have everyone joining in a hearty rendition of familiar tunes. There’s nothing more thrilling than being in the midst of a group of enthusiastic singers and in these sessions we’ll be singing lyrics in English only. No need to bring or wear anything special – just your voice and a sense of fun.
For those with more choral or music reading experience, there’s still something for you – sheet music and added harmony parts are optional for those who still want to have a relaxed evening of group music making, but enjoy something a bit more challenging.
By the end of the session, you’ll be raising the roof off Opera Queensland’s Rehearsal Studio in a rousing chorus and ready to head home humming some new favourite tunes. As a special bonus, you’ll also have the opportunity to hear our talented performers up close and personal performing a favourite song or duet accompanied on grand piano.
After the 90-minute session we invite you to join Opera Queensland’s friendly presenters and your partners-in-song for a celebratory beverage to round off your Friday evening at one of South Bank’s popular venues nearby. We’d love to make this a regular occasion, so give it a try- bring a friend, come in a group or just treat yourself to an enjoyable evening of music-making and socialising.
