    Ahh, CMVic’s singing camp at Amberley. Lovely surroundings, friends, hugs, singing together . . . wait! How can we do all that amid the pandemic? Your Victoria Sings team have been hard at work making sure it can happen for you, even if the hugs are virtual ones. You can still look forward to catching up with old friends and meeting new ones, learning new songs and sharing favourites, getting ideas for teaching online, new repertoire, nurturing your voice and yourself and having a really good sing. Oh, and did we mention the big sing in harmony will still be part of the event, even if we can’t get together by the piano this year...and there will be a party and a late night campfire, lots of familiar faces and the chance to chat with your friends.

    This is also a great chance for those of you who find it difficult to get to singing camp as you only need go as far as your living room – or office, kitchen, back patio – wherever you feel comfortable and wherever you are in Victoria or beyond.

    Pass the word, invite friends and fellow lovers of song. We have plenty of beds this year! Singing leader or shower singer, there will be something for you all to take part in.

    What is the structure?

    • Check out the program below. It will be packed with fun, interactive workshops led by amazing workshop leaders and peers from the community music scene across Victoria.
    • Participants can join one session or make a full day of it and join as many workshops as they like - it's a great chance to try out something new from the comfort of your own lounge room.
    • We will be using Zoom - if you want to try out a new voice then no-one will be able to hear you

    What will it cost? 

    It's free!  But this year we will be paying a fee to all of our workshop leaders, so a 'pay as you can' optional contribution at the time of registration would be hugely welcomed.

    How do I register? 

    Go to this Humanitix web page and enter your details. You only need to register ONCE for all the workshops and session - you will be sent one Zoom link that will work for all of them.
