UWA Staff Community Choir

Reduce your stress, meet new people and improve your physical and emotional health through singing. The Choir (or 'The Beast' as it's affectionately called) is free to all UWA Staff with no auditions required. We are always excited to welcome new members who love singing or who just want to have a go. It is hosted by two wonderful musical leaders, Sarah Brittenden and Michael Battersby.

The next series will run in 2020.
