After an interesting and intense Christmas and holiday break due to the fires…The Heathens are keen to start the new year filled with rejuvenative music and song! Term 1 starts today and we welcome any new comers and looking forward to getting together with old friends.
Join The Heathens & the Blue Mountains City RSL Band on December 8th at 2.30pm at St Hilda’s Church, Katoomba Street, Katoomba for their annual Christmas concert!
Tickets at the door – $10 for adults and children are free. All proceeds are donated to the Blue Mountains refugee Support Group.
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!
