Carols on Norton Children's Chorus

The Carols on Norton Children's Chorus is a free annual community event. Participants sing (with the orchestra) in Carols on Norton in Leichhardt's Pioneers Memorial Park. School aged children from year 2 onwards are welcome to join the Chorus. The cost is FREE (thanks to the sponsorship of the Inner West Council and Leichhardt Espresso Chorus).

All music and tuition is directed by Michelle Leonard AOM. Michelle is the Artistic Director of the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus and Ristretto, and Director of the award winning Moorambilla Voices. She has worked with the Sydney Children’s Choir, Gondwana Voices, STOMP, TaikOz and many leading schools in Sydney.

Children are required to attend at least 4 rehearsals leading up to the event. To register, just come along to the first rehearsal Friday 23rd December. Or pre-register here...
