Singing in a Pandemic

CKC has been rehearsing via Zoom every Wednesday night, lead by our unsinkable Director, Vicki Dwyer. We start every rehearsal with physical and vocal warmups.  We've been working on new songs as well as maintaining our current repertoire.  Because of time lags, we can't really sing together; but Vicki spent hours putting together recordings of our individual voices and we heard the result yesterday.  We're all mastering new skills through this crisis  - what doesn't kill us makes us stronger!

Christmas 2019

CKC sang Christmas carols on the steps of Sydney Town Hall last night to help City of Sydney launch Christmas in the City.  If you missed us, you can catch us again on Saturday, 30th November and Sunday, 15th December, somewhere in the Sydney CBD.

CKC awarded third place at Harmony Classic in St Louis USA

We're thrilled to have achieved third place in the Sweet Adelines Harmony Classic competition for small choruses in St Louis. We performed the plan, our audience laughed in all the right places, and our judges stopped writing and looked up to watch us.  Feedback from our audience was all positive. We're so proud of our Director, Vicki, our chorus, and everyone who helped us get there.

CKC sings Christmas

We love performing at Christmas.  We attracted appreciative audiences in Martin Place and Pitt Street Mall for City of Sydney, and sang to a packed crowd in Parramatta at the lighting of the Christmas Tree.

Garage Sale Success

Circular Keys Chorus raised nearly $2,000 from our giant garage sale in July 2015.  The first dealer turned up at 6 am.  There was a steady flow of customers all day, some of whom were entertained with live music as we practised our chorus repertoire.  At 3 pm we sorted out  what was left for the Council cleanup and our favorite op-shops.

2015 Hobart Convention

CKC members had a fabulous time in Hobart at the 2015 Sweet Adelines Regional Convention.  We brought home a 5th place medal for our collection and scored 592 points, not far behind the 3rd and 4th place winners.  We're also very proud we are of Alouette quartet who placed 2nd in the quartet competition.  On Saturday night we dressed up for a great Afterglow party superbly organised by our very own Lyn and Cheryl.
