Choir

The choir first began in the mid 1990s when a group of people in the Cornish Association of South Australia (CASA), who enjoyed singing, got together to put on a Christmas concert for the other society members.

Since then, it has grown both in numbers and standard of performances to the present, where we are able to provide a programme of a high standard to groups within the community, including church groups, retirement villages, hostels and nursing homes – in fact for anyone who would like to hear us sing.

We provide a varied programme including many Cornish songs and carols, as well as well-known and well loved golden oldies, and more modern songs interspersed with individual and small group artists, both vocal and instrumental.

Regular commitments are our involvement in the bi-ennial Cornish festival – The Kernewek Lowender – held in May in the Copper triangle and an annual Christmas concert in early December at the Rosefield Uniting Church, Highgate.
