    Description: Sing Summit weekend singing retreat

    Come and soothe your soul with a weekend of wholesome singing at Sing Summit weekend singing retreat in Newtown, led by Naomi Cooper and Jack Fitzgerald Sice of Sydney Alterna Choir. Gather with your fellow singing enthusiasts to help us scale the dizzying heights of the mountain of song.

    In the luscious acoustic of the Temple on the Park, we will lift our voices together in joyous a cappella harmony to wash away your cares with a long soak in a warm sound bath.

    At Alterna we sing whatever makes us happy: songs with an irresistible groove, songs that elicit happy tears, songs with delicious chords, songs with great stories.

    On Saturday we’ll provide a picnic lunch to share in the park, and after some more singing we'll relocate to the nearby Carlisle Castle Hotel in the late afternoon for a casual singalong around the piano with your beverage of choice and the option to share a pub meal together.

    On Sunday we’ll have a late start so you can sleep in, dust off the cobwebs from the night before, or walk your dog, then have a sing after lunch. 

    We’ll be learning brand new arrangements written especially for the weekend, so you don’t need to have sung with Alterna Choir before to join us for the retreat. Everyone is welcome and you don’t need any singing experience, just a sense of humour and sense of fun! We will teach everything by ear (we sing it for you and you just copy) so that everyone is comfortable, regardless of whether or not you have sung before.
