Choir Brochure

Our previous Brochure contains more information about our choir. A more up-to-date brochure is in preparation.


The Waratah Male Voice Choir originated in 1956 . It consisted of a group of men who liked to sing and looked to entertain residents of Aged Care Establishments . The Choir visits Aged care homes most weeks of the year and the performances consist of songs from Broadway shows, operas, hymns and solo performances. The choir also participates in concerts with other choirs throughout the year to raise funds for charities. We welcome any male who likes to sing and can hold a tune to join our choir . The choir is non denominational, and we practice Tuesday mornings from 9:30 a.m. till 12 noon at the Jesmond Uniting Church Hall, Robert Street Jesmond.

2020 represents a new start for the choir, with Tuesday morning practices under our new Musical Director Mr. Ellery Durrant and new accompianist Mrs. Helen Thursby.
