Introducing the Choir
The Elementals are an auditioned Acapella choir of about 20 singers, specialising in African American influenced traditional gospel (think Sister Act!), & related styles. An Acapella choir with contemporary pop songs and a touch the heart & soul.
Feel the spirit and join the fun with our vibey Gospel Choir Sydney – The Elementals.
We welcome new singers to audition with us. We are of no specific religion, although we do tend to sing spiritual, heartfelt soulful music.
We are a strong and committed community choir, directed by Ian Laurence. Ian began the choir in 1991. Ian was a film composer at the time, but wanted to get back into live performance. The concept of The Elementals is that rehearsals are great in themselves, but it’s also great to be able to share your music with audiences! The accent is on expression of feelings through music, so there’s lots of joy, soul, great musicianship without forgetting plenty of focus! Plus, the more you develop your strength & confidence in your singing, the more you might like to try doing “solos” within our community choir.
The Audition Process
Arrive at 7pm and join in with the choir’s normal rehearsal. This will enable you to sing with us as a choir and get to know our style.
At about 8.15 we have a small break with a cuppa and then you will have an opportunity to sing a song to us (or just to Ian if you don’t want to sing in front of the whole group).
Ian will check things like pitch, rhythm, voice control etc. 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 singing!
Thursday evenings from 7 – 9 pm in Leichhardt. Click here to contact us for more information.
