THE Red Dress Choir has dusted off its jingle bells and are back for another season of entertaining in Mandurah, Lakelands and Secret Harbour, Rockingham, Waikiki and Baldivis, while raising money for two local charities.

The choir has been singing together for 12 years and includes more than 30 Rockingham and Mandurah locals, with an age range from nine-years-old to adults.

Founder Michelle Mrzyglocki said the group had chosen this year to support Camp Kulin and Alzheimer’s WA – charities close to the hearts of choir members and their families.

“Last year we raised more than $10,000 for our chosen charities and we’re back in 2018 to do it all again,” Ms Mrzyglocki said.

“While we just love singing, we hope our efforts bring relief to some deserving charities – and inject some Christmas cheer.’’

Maisie Lothian (9) joined the choir with her Mum back in 2015 and said the Fiona Stanley Hospital concert was her favourite.

“We’re performing at 15 concerts across Rockingham and Mandurah this year but my favourite will be the Fiona Stanley Hospital performance because we get to sing for the patients in hospital over Christmas,” she said.

Maisie said the choir had also ‘kidnapped’ Santa’s dog, Monty, to accompany the group to most performances.

“He’s a labradoodle and not shy of selfies,” she said.
