Rockers Of Ages

Booking IconFor Elders and Aspiring Elders (Any age welcome) Linwood, St. Albans, Sumner, Kaiapoi
With support from Community and Public Health, and Sumner Bays Union Trust

These groups sing songs from around the world as well as fun and funky songs from the last five decades in harmony. It is a chance to have a lot of fun, and it really doesn't matter what your voice is like, or whether you think you can sing or not. Every practise includes a time for a cup of tea and a chance to get to know each other. Music is provided, but you don't need to be able to read music. There are NO AUDITIONS.

  • If you can't sing, you will be taught to sing.
  • If you have lost your voice, you will be helped to get it back.
  • If you need help with transport we will pick you up.
  • If you have a disability, we will accommodate it.
  • If not now, when?

Although this group is aimed at meeting the needs of older adults, anyone is welcome to come along. Young children welcome.

Four independent singing groups that come together occasionally for group performances. You can join any one, or all four!
