The Elementals is a strong singing group that welcomes anyone to join the choir. We are a strong, committed community choir singing spiritual, heartfelt, soulful music.
Directed by Ian Laurence, who was a film composer when the Sydney 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 in a 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 and great musicianship without forgetting plenty of focus!
Developing the strength & confidence in your singing. May encourage you to do a “solo” performance within our choir.
