The Choral Group
In 1950 the South Coast Choral Society was formed as a regional choir attracting members from many Fleurieu communities. When the society widened its activities into musicals and drama, its name was changed to the South Coast Choral and Arts Society.
The choir has continued to entertain audiences, often with 3 concerts each year, caterting to all musical tastes. It has been enthusiastically supported by our community, enabling the society to make many donations to local charities, especially the hospital.
As a significant member of the SA Country Choral Association' we participate in the biennial festival of country choirs and have presented many major works such as Handel's "Messiah", "Elijah" and "Creation".
In 2002 we hosted the presentation of "Two Captains", a musical tribute to the naval explorers Flinders and Baudin. This was part of the Encounter celebrations for which we won the "The Community Event of the Year" award.
In September 2014 the Choral Group took part in the 50th Anniversary of The South Australian Country Choral Association in the Barossa.
In August 2016, the Choral Group had the privelage of hosting the 23rd Biannual Choral Festival of the SA Country Choral Associsation in Victor Harbor.
The Choral Group practices Monday nights at Adare Uniting Church Hall from 7:30pm to 9:30pm.
There is a break after the Easter concert and a break after the Christmas concert.
