Swiss Kiwi Yodel Group

The Swiss Kiwi Yodel Group is a fun group of guys that really bring on the homesickness when singing their wonderful Swiss Yodels. After some recent changes we are eager to start afresh with a lovely repertoire of Swiss songs and yodels. A few of the yodlers also play some amazing tunes on their alphorns. 
We are always looking for new members (native swiss language would be preferred )

Check out their new website: http://yodelgroup.wix.com/swiss-kiwi-yodlers

Ladies Singing Group

We are a group of a good dozen Swiss women and meet twice a month in Glenfield. Our repertoire consists of a big variety of mainly Swiss and German songs. Many are traditional ones, but we are learning some more contemporary tunes too. We are often accompanied by our professional pianist, sometimes we sing a capella, or with ukuleles or guitar. Occasionally the recorders and flutes come out.

We value our singing, but what is just as important is our camaraderie and friendship. But we do make a point of having an extended cup of tea with some treat in the second half of the Tuesday evenings, where we exchange some of our joys and worries.

Our group neither has a charter nor a membership fee. We do have a folder where we keep our 140 or so songs. It is always a work in progress, as new ones are added, and less popular ones taken off.
Usually we take the plunge and perform twice a year – on the National Day celebration and at our Christmas Carol singing.

Sounds like this might be you? Feel free to come along. Contact any of our members or:
