Introducing the Elementals Choir. An Acapella Community Choir in Sydney’s Inner West
The Elementals Choir are an auditioned Acapella group in Sydney. With about 20 singers, specialising in African American gospel. Think Sister Act! We are an Acapella gospel choir singing contemporary pop with a touch of heart & soul.
Feel the spirit and join the fun with our vibey Gospel Choir!
The Elementals, welcomes new singers to audition. The choir is of no specific religion. Although we do tend to sing spiritual, heartfelt, soulful music. We are a strong, committed community choir.
Directed by Ian Laurence. Who was a film composer when the choir first started in 1991. Ian had the dream of getting back into live performance. This is where the concept of The Elementals came from.
Singing with the choir is a great way to share music with audiences! The accent is on the expression of feelings through music. So there’s lots of joy, soul, great musicianship without forgetting plenty of focus!
Developing the strength & confidence in your singing. May encourage you to do a “solo” performance within our community acapella choir.
Do I need to audition?
In short, there is no formal audition. But you will have to sing a song to Ian. So he can check things like; pitch, rhythm and voice control.
Just turn up at 7 pm to sing with us in rehearsal. This will give you the opportunity to learn our style. You can choose to sing a song to the group (if you feel confident enough). If not you can just sing to Ian Laurence – the Director.
Try to choose a song that is well within your comfort zone. Remember, this is not an exam.
The most important thing is, that you love to sing!
