LEC Home : Join Us

Join us

If you crave local fame, camaraderie and great music in your life, then join us, we'd LOVE to have you!

There's no audition, just come along!

We particularly welcome male singers, and singers under 25's can join for the student rate of only $50 per term.

We rehearse from 7pm to 9pm on Wednesday Nights at the Leichhardt Primary School Hall.

With great concerts planned regularly, now is always a good time to join.  In order to prepare properly for a concert, you should aim to join in the first or second week of a new term. 

2018 Program

  • Reimagining Handel’s Messiah, at Marrickville Town Hall on Sunday June 10 (rehearsals across term 1 and 2)
  • Australian Music concert featuring new works by Australian composers with special guests The Song Company (term 3)
  • Carols on Norton, in Leichhardt – The Sunday night before Christmas (term 4)

How much is it to join?

The choir operates on a term basis (based very loosely on school terms). 

Fees are $175 per term.

When can I start?

The first rehearsals for each new term are:

Term 1 & 2 – 31st January

Term 3 – 20th  June (TBC)

Term 4 – 17th  October

New members should join at the first or second rehearsal of a new term.

Do I need to read music?

Reading music is an advantage, but not a necessity as long as you are keen to learn.  We are non-audition and some coaching is provided by the Artistic Director, Michelle Leonard.

From time to time during the year we also offer Sight Sing at Six to those singers who wish to improve their music theory and sight singing. These workshops are run by Michelle and are full of useful insights into the written choral score and include lots of sight singing exercises. The workshops run for 45 minutes from 6pm prior to normal rehearsals.

Prospective members must contact 
Artistic Director, Michelle Leonard before joining. Email
