About The Warblers

The Woodend Warblers is a 50+ person non-auditioned community choir that began in 2018 and has gone from strength to strength, attracting a growing number of members from all over the Macedon Ranges. We are completely a cappella and sing a wide variety of music with a focus on inclusiveness, enjoyment and wonderful harmony.

The Woodend Warblers' Musical Director, Andrew Price, is also the co-director of Melbourne men’s singing group, Men in Suits. He also runs a side project with folk singer Fred Smith, and recently directed the Urban Sea Shanties project in Kyneton. Andrew has a passion for musical fun, good harmony, and strong community.


 


Come and sing with us!

The Warblers are a friendly group and always welcome new members. There are no auditions, no need to be able to read music, and you will never be asked to sing a solo (unless you really want to). The first session is free. Come and try singing with us any Wednesday during term time at 7.30pm at Norma Richardson Hall, 15 Buckland St, Woodend. And make sure you allow a little extra time to join us at the pub afterwards, where the singing continues! For more information contact Andrew Price on 0419 604 444 or email andrew@woodendwarblers.com.au.

Almost four years to the day since our first public performance, the Woodend Warblers had the opportunity to return to Murtoa, a quaint lakeside town in the Wimmera, having been invited to join in the town’s 150th birthday celebrations.

Notes from a Wobbly Warbler
(published in the Midland Express 23rd Feb 2022)

What! Me? Sing?
When my daughter, newly arrived in Woodend with her family this year, suggested I join her to give Woodend Warblers a try, all I could think of were obstacles. I hadn’t sung in a choir since school, over half a century ago. I don’t read music. I don’t play an instrument. I am rather deaf and wear hearing aids.

But we summoned our limited courage and turned up at Norma Richardson Hall at 7.30pm on a Wednesday evening in February.
