National Gatherings have been a big part of our journey in Sing Australia.  Up until 2020, when we had to put a hold on having such events, we had held 18 of them around the country with our very first being held in Canberra in 2001. They were staged in all the Capital Cities on multiple occasions and in many regional centres. They embraced and celebrated everything that is great about Sing Australia. The fun, the gathering of friends, the singing of so many songs we have learned together, the experiences of the different locations of what Australia has to offer, the sense of solidarity of purpose, the spirit of inclusiveness. Everyone who has participated will have their own special memories.  It is now 9 years ago since we held a National Gathering in Canberra and this photo depicts so much of the essence of our wonderful national network. All States and Territories were represented. While all these wondrous things have been on hold we are now setting our sites on a big return to a Sing Australia National Gathering in Canberra in 2023. That seems a good while off but we are going to start planning early and the time will get away on us. All being well it will be held on 6, 7 and October.  It will also celebrate 25 years from when we set up our first Sing Australia group. It was called Colours.  The event next year is something to really look forward to.

Welcome to Sing Australia

When you join a Sing Australia group, you are welcomed with open arms and ears to sing in any way you are able. We believe that singing is for everybody who has a voice – it s a primal expression connecting us to each other, our history, our stories, our struggles, our memories and our future hopes. Every voice is beautiful and is cherished in Sing Australia. Studies have shown that singing releases endorphins that can give us energy and lower stress levels and that singing together contributes to our experience of wellbeing, social inclusion and connection. Your Sing Australia group connects you to others in your community, giving you the opportunity to build new friendships and support networks. In Sing Australia, we value and promote these health and wellbeing benefits and believe we can be a great source of positivity, health and joy in your life.
