We’re having a tiny break and will be back on January 8

We know you love singing over summer so we’ll be back and singing at The Butterfly Club from Tuesday January 8 at 6:30.  

Would you like to sing better?

We’re running a workshop to help you do just that on Saturday January 19!

Chris Nolan is a truly excellent vocal technician (you can read all about him here) and he will help you discover and apply techniques to help you sing with ease and clarity. And we’ll make sure we’ve got time to cover your questions too.

We’ll kick off at 3pm at The Rising Sun Hotel in South Melbourne, have a quick break for a drink in the middle and finish up at 5:30/6.

It doesn’t matter if you’re a newbie chorister or a proficient vocalist who loves singing as often as possible, you’ll take home insight and ideas to inspire you for the new year.

Tickets are $42 or $35 student concession and are available through trybooking.com

It might even make a great Christmas present for a singing buddy!

Glee Plus: The Melbourne Project

Glee Plus have had an incredible year with performances at The Teddy Bears’ Pinic at Rippon Lea, Ballarat Begonia Festival, North Melbourne Primary School’s Fete, The Abbotsford Convent and The Melba Spiegeltent.  Not to mention a countless number of harmonies, laughs and glasses of sparkling shiraz!  To have a listen to some of Glee Plus’ fabulous singing, check out our youtube channel.

And we’re busy planning next year!  Our first season for 2019 will be titled ‘The Melbourne Project’ and will highlight local composers including some brand-new, off-the-press compositions as well as songs that connect to and celebrate this beautiful city we call home.

We have the rehearsal dates locked in but are still a step away from announcing the performance venue.  We’ll also spend time in the recording studio at the end of this project to record some of these excellent pieces so if you’ve always dreamed of being a recording artist, now’s your chance!

Rehearsals are Saturdays from 4:00 – 6:15 at The Butterfly Club (and we always break for wine time in the middle!)

The cost is $370 with a 10% discount for returning Glee Plussers.  You can pay this in two payments or all at once or you can get in touch to make a payment plan of smaller payments if that suits you better.

Here are the dates:

February 2 – March 2
Break for Labour Day weekend
March 16 – March 30 (please note that March 30 we’ll be rehearsing in a different location)
Break for Easter holidays
April 27 – May 11
May 19 – recording session

And a performance sometime between May 12 and May 18!

To register your interest, simply email Vicky and she’ll add you to the list.

And you’re always welcome to try the first session to see if it’s for you before committing to the whole season.  Again, just send through an email and let Vicky know that’s your plan!

We’re heading to New York – wanna come?

We were so excited to launch our next adventure at the Melba Spiegeltent on Saturday night!Here’s the plan: in September 2020 we’re going to head to the Big Apple for 8 days to sing together every morning and spend our afternoons and evenings doing workshops, seeing shows, checking out gigs and hitting up the piano bars with a group of fellow singing travelers.

You don’t need to sing with Glee Club or Glee Plus already and we’d never make you audition or sing solo (although there will be solo opportunities if you want). You just need to be up for a singing adventure!

Head to the New York page for all the info then fill in the expressions of interest form and we’ll keep you in the loop with our plans (you don’t have to decide for quite a while yet). It will seriously be so much fun!

Thankyou for a wonderful Christmas and a wonderful year!

We had such a brilliant time caroling around the city in all sorts of weather! Thankyou so much to all the Gleebers who made time to come spread some Christmas spirit – we had wonderful feedback from audiences and venues and I  can’t wait to do it all again next year! If you’d like to see us in action you’ll find clips of us performing on our Instagram and Facebook pages.

And thankyou to everyone who came along to Glee Club throughout the year. Whether you dropped in once or twice or were a weekly regular, you helped to make this year an absolute blast with tribute nights, pub nights, pop songs, show tunes and mega-medleys galore!

We’ve got lots planned for 2019 so have a happy and restful Christmas and I look forward to having a sing with you all when we’re back on January 8!
