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 dozen Swiss women and meet twice a month (on a Tuesday evening, at 7.30) in Glenfield. Our repertoire consists of a big variety of mainly Swiss and German songs. Many are traditional ones;  we are learning some more contemporary tunes too.

We value our singing, but what is just as important is our camaraderie and friendship. We usually sing for about 90 minutes, then enjoy a cup of tea with some treats, 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.

In December we usually we invite all Swiss and their friends to our Carol singing. Occasionally we sing a few songs at Swiss club events, but we don’t have any official public performances.

Sounds like you? Feel free to come along and try us out. Or contact any of our members eg:
