Welcome to The Glorious MUDsingers
Based in the Milton-Ulladulla District of beautiful South Coast NSW, we come together for a cappella singing in the African American gospel and African spiritual traditions. We like to Let it Go, Let it Out, Let it all unravel...
We are a secular choir whose shared religion is Singing, with a mission to connect with each other and with the wider community through song.
Just as our repertoire of spirituals is sung best with a Give it Up attitude, we likewise give up all our funds raised through our performances and CD sales to local and national community organisations who do good deeds.
Formed in 2007, we now number about 80 singers and together we make a big, passionate sound. We believe that there's a place for everyone in our choir. There are no auditions, but that doesn't mean we're slack with our singing! We do lots of workshops, training and performances and we love our road trips. We've hit the road to Auckland (NZ), the National Folk Festival (Canberra), the Festival of Voices (Hobart) and the Moruya Jazz Festival and even the South Coast's answer to the Royal Albert Hall, Tomerong Community Hall.
It's SOLD OUT (yes!), but just so you know: we're on Sydney Harbour this Saturday 14 November for a fundraising cruise and concert. This is sure to be the boat that rocked. Proceeds to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre. 'For those that come across the seas...'
MEET A MUDSINGER
George and Helen McFarland
Recent Happy Retirees
Having joined fairly early on in the choir's history, we both love the pure enjoyment of singing. George has always been a frustrated 'would-be' rock singer and Helen's childhood name was 'Bella' (when in the bathroom would try and copy opera singers!). We now find every Wednesday practice to be utterly uplifting and it's the friendliest, most joyous group of people. We have each found our niche with the Mudsingers and we have goosebump moments every week.
