Our 10th anniversary celebrations on June 5 were featured in an article in the Blue Mountains Gazette issue of June 14 2019.
The celebration was full of fun and frivolity and fabulous food. Who knew we had so much talent – both musical and culinary? Or that we loved getting into costume? Many a wardrobe and bargain discount shop was raided to satisfy our inner dressing-up desires.
You can read the full article and see pictures of the performers here.
2019 marks the 10th year that The Heathens have been singing together under the direction of Chris Wheeler and we will be celebrating all year by re-visiting old songs and learning new songs to share with our wonderful community. We have grown from a small group of 10 to a healthy choir of 50 plus in the last 10 years and look forward to welcoming any new comers who are thinking of joining this year.
Term 1 starts on Wednesday January 30!
2018 was another great year for The Heathens – learning new songs and performing at different venues and lots of great times spent together. Thank you Chris for your ever-gracious patience and your expertise in getting 50 people to sound good! Thanks to Mick for your support and for all the behind-the-scenes work that has to be done to get 50 people to turn up with the right music!
See you in 2019!
Here are some photos of the Heathens hamming it up at their Christmas Party – thanks to Hilary and John for the photos!
The Heathens are celebrating Christmas this year with two concerts! They will be very different but with the same message…PEACE and UNITY. See below for details for both and we hope you can join us!
Join us at Rydal to celebrate Spring! Thousands of daffodils have been planted in the parks and gardens of Rydal, just west of the Blue Mountains. Daffodils at Rydal 2018 will take place over the two weekends of 8/9 September and 15/16 September. $10 entry takes you to all the gardens.

We all know the wonderful benefits of singing – especially with others…but did you know that it can trigger memories in those who struggle to remember? This is a very interesting article…
