Be part of the Ukestral Voices Choir!
Jane Jelbart directs this community choir (with a little difference), teaching songs from around the world, as well as gospel, contemporary music and jazz repertoire. We have performed at numerous festivals, including the National Folk Festival in 2014 and 2015.
There is an emphasis on harmonising, learning vocal parts, improvising and even a bit of percussion. Jane is keen to get the best from your voice and improve your vocal technique, however she is also keen on having fun and making sure everyone enjoys themselves.
WE ARE MAKING A NEW CHOIR!
ARE YOU KEEN TO ATTEND A NEW CHOIR TIME? We already sing on Friday afternoons 2-3.45pm but maybe you can’t make this time and day?
We are seeking interest for a new choir time (either Wednesday evening or Sunday afternoon) to start in mid to late March if we have enough interest. Please fill in this form if you would like to register your interest (no commitment required). Remember this is all about singing, no ukulele is required (although welcome)!
This choir has grown out of the ukestras and people’s enthusiasm for improving their singing skills. However we stand alone as well. People are encouraged to bring a uke to the choir but this is not essential. Did we say we have lots of fun?
Here is some evidence of that.
Who is Jane Jelbart?

Jane has played Brazilian, African and Flamenco percussion for years and likes to incorporate these elements into singing.
