In 2017, City Recital Hall burst with the sound of hundreds of exhilarated voices, singing in collective spontaneity. Music-making at its most organic, most uplifting, and most joyful, Sydney Flash Mob Choir returns to City Recital Hall in 2018 and you’re invited to lend your voice to the harmony.
An energetic and inclusive gathering like no other, Sydney Flash Mob Choir is fun, free and easy to participate in – no prior experience is needed.
How it works: You get an SMS with a date and time. You decide to come along. We bring on stage one of Australia’s many entertaining and talented conductors who picks a song for you to sing and there might just be a surprise guest.
Prepare to be moved to laughter, tears, and toe-tapping synchrony. The energy is contagious, cathartic, and full of warmth – an unbeatable experience for anyone who wants to, loves to, needs to….SING
It’s free. It’s fun. There’s no commitment or rehearsals.
Here’s how Sydney Flash Mob Choir works:
Free, non-ticketed event
If you have registered previously for Sydney Flash Mob Choir, you don't need to register again!
When is Sydney Flash Mob Choir being held?
We’ll hold Sydney Flash Mob Choir events about once a month. The days and times will vary so different people can attend each time.
Register your mobile number above and a few days before the next Sydney Flash Mob Choir event we’ll send an SMS to everyone who has registered to let them know the date and time.
How long does each event go for?
Each one will run for about 40 minutes but you’re free to come and go as you please.
Once I register, do I have to attend every event?
No, there’s no commitment. You can choose to come often, now and then, or not at all. It’s up to you, but we hope to see you often.
Can I bring friends or family who haven’t registered?
Yes, the more the merrier! They only need to register if they would like to receive notifications of Flash Mob Choir events from us.
Do I need to reply to the SMS to let you know whether or not I’m attending?
No, if you can make it, just turn up. Our SMS service doesn’t receive replies.
Do I need to register for each flash mob event?
No, you only need to register your mobile phone number once and you'll receive an event SMS notification each time.
Do I need to buy a ticket to participate?
No, the events are free and non-ticketed. If you can make it, just turn up.
Even if I’m a terrible singer, can I still participate?
Absolutely, enthusiasm counts for just as much as a good singing voice in Sydney Flash Mob Choir.
I can’t read music, can I still participate?
Yes, you don’t need to have any experience. The conductor will guide us all through the songs on the day.
Do I need to practice the songs beforehand?
No, the songs we sing will be a surprise. You’ll be given a song sheet and guided through the songs on the day.
Will the events always be held at City Recital Hall?
We hope to take Sydney Flash Mob Choir to the streets in the not-too-distant future. Register and stay tuned!
