Hummingsong is a vibrant musical community of nearly 500 women in six choirs in Sydney’s north. We are six friendly villages within one big, inclusive Hummingsong community. We push ourselves to make fabulous quality music, performing a diverse range of beautiful musical styles. We are women supporting each other and others in their local community, through laughter, music and friendship.

One of Hummingsong Choirs’ hallmarks is our diverse repertoire of beautifully arranged songs. We are inviting financial support as we expand this library for our 2020 season.

The upcoming season is shaping up as one to watch… full of warmth and soul-nourishing music, culminating in another season-highlight annual concert event next September.

Hummingsong is a platform for sharing a wonderful message to the public. It’s a message that promotes the power and passion for community music making and one that hopefully will tug at the hearts of the general public. We hope to inspire others to a) get involved in their own community singing in a choir, and b) take action against domestic violence.

We are absolutely thrilled to be starting a new Hummingsong Community Choir in Melbourne in January 2020.

We also have a philanthropic milestone to achieve in 2020, which is to exceed $200,000 donated to local domestic violence shelters. Since our inception in 2012 we have raised donated just over $180,000, and these funds are raised largely through our performances.

Thank you very much for your generous support.

By contributing to the costs of licensing, copyright, and the commissioning of arrangements and occasionally compositions, you are directly supporting the enrichment of local women in our community, through the beautiful powers of music and fellowship.

Hummingsong Community Choirs is a network of women’s a cappella choirs, with just over 500 members based in six different locations on Sydney’s Northern Beaches and North Shore, and with an increasing demand for choirs around the country.

Anna Humberstone is the Founder and Artistic Director who works alongside three other passionate conductors. These choirs offer women a vibrant opportunity to sing for fun and nourish their souls.

Non-auditioned and inclusive, these wonderful musical communities sing, laugh and grow together. They stage a variety of performances throughout the year… small concerts at local venues, festivals, care homes and once a year all the choirs come together to participate in their annual gala concert.

Performing beautiful repertoire from a wide range of musical styles, with pieces that challenge the members and make interesting and dynamic programs for audiences is their signature. They proudly support local Australian composers by commissioning arrangements and new works that are tailored to the talents and capabilities of their singers.

Hummingsong is committed to raising awareness and funds for women and children in need, particularly those locally who are escaping domestic violence, and it is through our performances that we raise money for the charities that we support.
