Choir life – an exciting journey


Being a part of the WGC is so much more than singing for an hour or 2 on a Monday night.

Choir life is full of fun and adventure – hard work is part of the ride, of course, and a host of amazing rewards as a result.


  • Weekly rehearsals are the foundation. Here, we start with vocal warms ups and basic vocal training before working on the songs for upcoming performances and projects.
  • Then there are camps and workshops for ongoing vocal development
  • Plus team challenges and peer leadership for team and personal development
  • And of course there's the photo shoots, social events, and  tours - all great fun!Juniors at Maroba
  • As well as scholarship opportunities.
