THEY performed before sold out crowds at this year’s Perth Fringe Festival and now the successful Born To Sing Choir is bringing its blues busting chorus to Guildford.

From October 5 the Born to Sing Choir, led by choral director Martin Meader, will hold weekly rehearsals at St Matthews Anglican Church Hall.

Mr Meader said no auditions were necessary to join the choir.

“We welcome all non-singers, shower singers, park singers, car singers, air guitar singers and actual singers,” he said,

“Born to Sing choirs sing songs from the heart that make you feel good, raise self-esteem and help you lose the blues.

“The choir’s repertoire includes gospel, uplifting contemporary songs, short classical pieces and anything that moves the soul.”

Mr Meader said since its inception in 2008, Born to Sing had raised more than $173,000 to donate to various charitable causes such as survivors of bushfires, Cancer Council Relay For Life, Red Cross Blood Bank, Mission Australia and Variety.

Born to Sing performs each year in The Perth Fringe Festival, for the Australian Army Nurses, Guildford Songfest, Dunsborough Songfest and Carols By Candlelight with the Variety Youth Choir at Langley Park.

In August 2018, the choirs will be performing at the Edinburgh Festival in Scotland.
