Background

The Hunter Trebles is the junior choir of the Hunter Singers organisation, celebrating 27 years of music making. Young singers in the Hunter Trebles participate in weekly rehearsals at Merewether High School, learning songs and singing technique, music theory, playing games and having fun making music. The Hunter Trebles are conducted by music teacher and Star Struck choir director, Charissa Ferguson.


The Trebles perform in concert with the Hunter Singers once a term, plus additional performances at the Sydney Opera House Festival of Choral Music, Star Struck, and King Edward Park Carols by Candlelight.


Membership is open by audition for students in years 3-6 at Government primary schools.


The Hunter Trebles rehearse on Tuesday afternoons at Merewether High School between 5.00pm and 6.30pm. Membership costs are subsidised by the Department of Education and fees are $95 per term, with a uniform cost of $90, which includes performance T Shirts, and performance pants.


Students who would like to audition for Hunter Trebles are invited to come to a rehearsal and join in with the group. There will be a brief, informal audition at the end of the rehearsal in which students will sing Advance Australia Fair as part of a small group.
