ABOUT THE GROUP
Hunter Singers was formed in 1989 to provide students in government high schools with the opportunity to sing in a quality vocal ensemble. The group has a reputation for excellence, which is enhanced by participation in festivals and competitions as part of national and international tours. Hunter Singers presents a wide range of musical styles including Australian contemporary and classical.
Hunter Singers performs three major concerts a year at Adamstown Uniting Centre, as part of the Hunter Singers Subscription Concert Series. In addition to this, the group participates in concerts at the Sydney Opera House, Sydney Town Hall, local arts and charity events and the King Edward Park Carols By Candlelight.
Hunter Singers is sponsored by the Department of Education and Communities and the fees represent very good value for the minimal cost of $100 per term. Camp, excursion and uniform fees are additional but are kept to a minimum.
