The Montague Choristers are a mixed choir based on the far South Coast of NSW. The Monties have been singing a wide variety of music for over 25 years, but new members are always welcome. Previous choral experience is not necessary and there are no auditions. We rehearse at All Saints' Anglican Church, Bodalla and perform four times a year, either at All Saints' or at St Paul's Anglican Church in Tilba St, Narooma.
We are currently rehearsing a selection of chansons, madrigals and part-songs for our Spring Concert at 2:30 pm on Sunday, October 2. Weekly rehearsals are on Tuesdays, 9:30 to 11:30 at All Saints' Anglican Church, Bodalla. Come sing with us!
Also coming up is an open rehearsal with the Muffat Collective https://www.themuffatcollective.com.au/ at 2:30 pm on Monday September 26. This event is made possible by Music in the Regions https://www.musicintheregions.com/about-us who will be bringing the Muffat Collective to Eurobodalla as part of River of Art 2022.
