Seniors choir prove you're never too old to sing

YOU are never too old to sing, according to members of the Beenleigh and Districts Senior Citizens Centre Choir, which is open to retirees of all ages.

Choir administrator Tania Brown said most people thinking about joining first wanted to know what type of songs the choir sang.

"The answer can be summarised simply as songs from the 19th to the 21st century make up the choir's repertoire," she said.

The songs include numbers from genres such as country, folk, movies, music hall, musicals, popular, rock'n'roll and sacred.

Ms Brown said there was no audition to join and no requirement for singers to be able to read music.

She said there were also opportunities for anyone who wanted to have a go at singing solo or in a duet.

"Unlike some choirs, there are no weekly choir expenses or joining fees apart from joining the Beenleigh and Districts Senior Citizens Centre Choir which costs $11 for an annual membership," she said.

The choir performs a concert at the centre every two months with weekly rehearsals so members do not have to travel to other locations.

To join, call the centre's office on 3287 1477. Inquiries can also be emailed to admin@bdscc.org.au.
