Welcome back to ARCappella 2022! Even though COVID continues to affect life (it does feel somewhat like 2020 too 😛 ), we are planning to resume singing in-person and online from Wednesday 9th February, 7:30pm. As per last year, we are closely following the Victorian Government’s health directives and will make in-person rehearsals as safe and as fun as possible, while having Zoom rehearsals available for those who are not ready for group singing. We are still in the process of confirming venue availability (it’s still looking good for Sacred Heart Primary School, Preston) and working through our COVID-safe plan, so stay tuned for details that will be sent around as soon as more information becomes available. Looking forward to resuming with all our current, previous and new members, and after a really great Christmas term, we welcome back Marina Thacker as our wonderful ongoing choral director!
We are thrilled to confirm the appointment of Marina Thacker as ARCappella’s Choral Director. Marina commenced with us in Term 4 and comes with a wealth of experience as a community choir conductor/ musical director. Marina has conducted community choirs for over 20 years in Brisbane and we are looking forward to a long and fruitful partnership with her also. Welcome Marina!

We are proud to present our latest virtual choir project “Come What May” from Moulin Rouge! This was our rehearsed and recorded entirely during Melbourne’s 6th (and hopefully) final lockdown. Enjoy
With restrictions easing once again in Melbourne, we’re excited to be rehearsing in person once again from the Wednesday 14th July 7:30pm at Sacred Heart Primary School in Preston. Entry from Clifton Grove. Ensure that you have your mobile phone for QR checking in and your masks as these will be required for singing. We also strongly encourage our members who are eligible for a COVID jab to be vaccinated to further protect themselves. See our COVID safe-plan and registration form here. If you haven’t already registered for rehearsals this year, they are a must. Can’t wait to get back to it!
