Sound Crowd is a community choir (for 18 years +) held on the second Wednesday of every month in The Brewery, Imperial Hotel Eumundi.
The next one is on Wednesday 13 June where you, the audience, become the choir for the night!
Sound Crowd Director Analiese Long says the contemporary choir gives everyone a chance to sing well-known, well-loved songs with a drink in hand and mates around.
“Everyone can sing, and it’s even more fun in a group,” says Analiese “And there is nothing like a choir to help you hit the high notes!”
“This is an inclusive event and we welcome everyone – experienced singers as well as those of us who happily belt out a song in the shower or car with the music turned up loud!”, she says.
There is no preparation required by choristers before the Sound Crowd events. Your guides for the evening will teach you one song in an hour and a half, with the group all performing it together at the end of the night. Take the main vocal or try out some harmonies.
Analiese stresses that vocal chords like to be lubricated, and the fact that the Eumundi Sound Crowd event is being held in The Brewery (an event space overlooking a working brewery), well, it just writes itself!
Sound Crowd will supply the words and musical accompaniment, so participants simply need to grab a drink and join in. Whether you sing high, low or just like to belt out the melody, we will make groups and learn parts together.
Analiese and her husband Mike Long have been Eumundi locals since returning from overseas in 2012. Both have careers in the industries they love, music, theatre and circus – travelling all over the Australia and the globe, but always returning to the Eumundi community they call home.
The cost is just $10 at the door and the evening will be photographed/filmed – so you’ll get the chance to see/share the Sound Crowd magic after the night too!
