Glee Plus is the big sibling group to Glee Club for singers who are ready for a bit more of a challenge.
Glee Plus is a little different from ordinary choirs and here’s why:
- We work in short seasons towards a performance so you only have to commit for a couple of months at a time.
- We work fast. We usually get through four or five songs in a rehearsal. If you feel like you missed a bit, we give you practice tracks and music so you can go over it yourself at home.
- We don’t have Tea Break in the middle of our rehearsals. We have Wine Time!
- No dusty church halls. We rehearse at the fabulous Butterfly Club in the CBD and perform at iconic venues. Some places we’ve performed are: MONA, The Melba Spiegeltent, The Melbourne Town Hall, The State Library of Victoria, The Old Melbourne Gaol, The Malthouse Theatre and Rippon Lea Historic Homestead and we’re always coming up with new and exciting ideas.
- No uniforms. We’d rather you wear clothes that you feel comfortable and confident in.
- No auditions and no experience necessary. We understand that singers will all have different strengths and experiences so give you all the practice tools you need to participate fully.
- No touchy-feely. You don’t need to tell us your ‘journey’ or why you like to sing. We understand that singing is important to everyone in a different way and get on with the actual singing!
Interested? Here’s what’s next for Glee Plus:
Cocktail Hour with Glee Plus
Rehearsal times: Saturdays 4:15-6:15 at The Butterfly Club
Rehearsal dates: April 28 – June 23 (no rehearsal June 9 due to Queen’s Birthday weekend)
Performance date: June 24 in the evening at the Oratory at Abbotsford Convent
Cost: $250 with a 10% discount for returning Gleebers
What we’ll be doing: A program of light jazz, show tunes and lounge music just perfect for cocktail hour. There’ll be some opportunities for solo singing – the usual Glee Plus rules apply: if you want a solo, you get one. But the main focus will be on some lovely crunchy jazz harmonies and creating a smooth and sophisticated atmosphere for our audience.
