For those people who love to sing, a new community choir has just started in Byron Bay.


The New Dawn Chorus was formed following the success of the annual Christmas carols at the Byron at Byron resort.


“In response to the overwhelming joy and enthusiasm shared at this event, we have decided to hold more regular singing meets,” choir leader Julia Hall said.


“Last year’s carols were bigger than ever and the group thought it would be lovely to meet regularly and enjoy the spirit and fun of a choir.” Young, old, female or male, highly trained vocalist or those who may never have sung a note, the New Dawn Chorus welcomes everyone.


“A choir is about learning to blend your voice, it’s about people finding their voice, gaining confidence and the joy of singing,” Julia said.


“There is no such thing as ‘I can’t sing’.”


The New Dawn Chorus will meet next on February 17 at St Paul’s Anglican Church in Byron Bay at 5.45pm.


For more information phone Julia on 66859922 or email her at juliahall@aapt.net.au
