Singing: 7:15 Tuesday evenings
PAG Room, former Banksia Lodge, Jones St., Foster
The Prom Coast Singers hosted Sing South Gippsland 2 on the first weekend in September with the acclaimed Richard Gill as musical director.
The event drew five Gippsland choirs and over 100 singers together for choral workshops and performances by individual choirs and massed singing.
The Bass Coast Chorale, Yallourn Madrigal Singers, West Gippsland Chorale and Bec’s Bonny Boners joined with the Pro Coast Singers for the festival.
Closer to the end of the year, for the Prom Coast Singers will be singing at the Foster Community Carols by Candlelight.
You are invited to join in this fun and music making.
If you ever sing around the house, in the shower, in the car, perhaps while listening to your favourite music, here is your chance to put your impromptu efforts to good use, have fun and meet new people with similar interests.
The Prom Coast Singers are looking for new voices to swell their ranks.
Whether you are an experienced chorister, a closet singer or someone seeking fun and friendship you will be made most welcome.
We need more singers of all denominations but particularly sopranos and basses.
The choir’s Musical Director, Claudene-Marie Adams, is a phenomenal violinist and voice teacher.
Her studies at the Western Australian Conservatorium of Music include specialisation in Renaissance and baroque singing under the direction of Richard Gill. This has provided her with an amazing array of teaching techniques to enhance the singing skills of each choir participant.
Claudene-Marie presents the choir with an interesting variety of musical experiences and also encourages development of vocal range, personal engagement, movement, music reading skills and interpretation of music.
Song styles range from classical through to modern day with jazz, gospel, musicals and operetta among the mix.
Rehearsals are designed to be sociable and fun, challenging vocally and spiritually uplifting as the Prom Coast Singers work towards future projects.
New choir members are warmly invited to join the Prom Coast Singers for weekly rehearsals on Tuesday evening in the PAG Room in the former Banksia Lodge, Jones Street, Foster.
Come at 7.15 ready to warm up the vocal cords from 7.30.
Participation is $6 per rehearsal.
Being a community choir, there are no auditions to join the Prom Coast Singers although Claudene-Marie will want to hear you sing so she can place you in the best section of the choir for your voice.

The rebirth of the Prom Coast Singers has been made possible because we have secured the services of talented musician, Claudene-Marie Adams, as our musical director.
Claudene-Marie is a phenomenal violinist and voice teacher who was accepted into the Western Australian Conservatorium of Music at just 15 years of age.
She studied violin and voice and earned the Most Outstanding Performance Award in her Diploma of Performing Arts and Bachelor of Music courses. Later she specialised in Renaissance and Baroque singing under the direction of Richard Gill.
In 2009 Claudene-Marie was living in South Gippsland when FAMDA staged the musical, Into the Woods. She played the Baker’s Wife, winning the Gippsland Associated Theatre award for the most outstanding lead female in the process.
She also sang with the Prom Coast Singers and ran stimulating rehearsals for some of the voice groups.
On 22nd July 2014, after a fairly long break, the Prom Coast Singers resumed singing on Tuesday evenings at the Anglican Church Hall, Foster with Claudene-Marie as their musical director.
The immediate project was preparation for a wonderful major work composed by Larry Hills to commemorate the Anzac Centenary to be performed in public in April 2015 in Wonthaggi, Leongatha and Foster.
The Prom Coast Singers sang the cantata, entitled They Went With Songs, together with the Bass Coast Chorale (Wonthaggi), the South Gippsland Singers (Leongatha) and a ‘soldiers chorus’ accompanied by an orchestra conducted by Larry.
