2017 marks an important milestone for Coisir Ghaidhlig Astrailianach, the Australian Gaelic Singers,heralding the 35th year of the choir promoting the music of the Islands & Highlands of Scotlandwith a repertoire of mainly Scottish Gaelic Music.  Being a member of this choir gives us the opportunity to promote a distinctive, and often forgotten, Gaelic culture with performances at Scottish heritage and Celtic events.

We extend an invitation for you to join us either as a choir member or as part of our audience.  You may never have tried singing in Gaelic, but having no prior knowledge of Gaelic need not be a deterrent to joining us and most of us have learned to sing phonetically.  As our audiences have discovered, you don't have to understand each word of the language to appreciate the underlying beauty of the music and the message - sometimes romantic sometimes joyful and foot-tapping, sometimes full of pathos and yearning for a land left behind, and nearly always haunting.  It speaks of a time past but not forgotten, and we want to continue to do our utmost to keep the memories of this culture alive within our multi-cultural society. The warm reception the music receives at public performances is very rewarding, and proves that the wider community does appreciate being exposed to Gaelic Music.

We look forward to welcoming new members during the coming year, and we remind past members that you are always very welcome to join us again.  We also welcome enquiries about the choir's availability to perform at community events, so if you are interested please direct enquiries to our music director at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Regular rehearsals are held in the small church hall of the Macquarie Chapel Presbyterian Church at the corner of Herring and Abuklea Roads, Eastwood on Thursday evenings, from 7.30pm to 9.30pm.  Theres some parking in the church parking area or there is plenty of street parking.

We invite you to look through the rest of our website and in our FAQ page are examples of questions that prospective members have raised with us which might enlighten you if you are interested in singing for pleasure and performance.  Even if you have a limited grasp of music and none of Scots Gaelic, we'd love any enthusiastic singer to join us. See our contacts page for details.

We look forward to the coming year with confidence, and the expectation of enjoyable rehearsals,  good fellowship, and the successful performances and promotion of Gaelic music.
