Founded in 2006, the Aqualuna Singers are an a cappella choir based in Lane Cove, Sydney. Rehearsing from the beautiful outlook of St Aidan's Church Hall, Longueville, our ethos is to sing for the sheer enjoyment of it!
Aqualuna explores an eclectic range of choral repertoire, including folk, contemporary and original arrangements. As an unaccompanied ensemble, members learn to tune and blend with one another to create a clear, unified sound that is flexible enough to adapt to the diverse range of music we sing.
In addition to their own end-of-year showcase, Aqualuna Singers are regular features at the choral festivals in and around Sydney, and have appeared in partnership with many other Sydney choirs, including the Phoenix Youth Choir, Chorella, and Pyrmont Sings.
