Sweet Mona’s Choir The CHIME Choir, Melbourne

2:00pm, Sunday 29th July, 2018 at the Ballarat Welcome Centre Chapel
An afternoon of eclectic choral excellence.

Sweet Mona’s Choir were pleased to share the stage recently with the CHIME Choir, Melbourne – a contemporary community choir that presented an innovative and eclectic musical program, which filled The Welcome Centre Chapel with the beautiful sound of their arrangements of classical and contemporary music, showcasing the beauty and power of choral singing. Sweet Mona’s Choir warmed the wintry space with some driving gospel beats and traditional music from faraway, and much warmer, places. The finale of the afternoon saw the two choirs combining to perform the Mona’s arrangement of gospel classic, Working on a Building, sung by about 50 voices.


Sweet Mona’s Choir The Alley Cats Choir
Featuring Mini Mona’s Choir


7:00pm, Saturday 30th June, 2018 at the Ballarat Welcome Centre Chapel
Three fantastic choirs in a beautiful Ballarat venue.

The Sweet Mona’s Choir recently had the pleasure of workshopping and sharing the stage with our good friends the Alleycats choir, from Bairnsdale. The Alleycats are renowned for their fun spirit, beautiful harmonies and uplifting songs, and the Sweet Mona’s got to share in this throughout an afternoon song-swap workshop. It was a very enjoyable experience for all concerned, and the evening concert warmed the hearts of the audience on such a cold Ballarat evening. The concert also featured the Mini Mona’s Choir, who never fail to draw smiles and applause wherever they go!
