Established in 1974, the Buderim Male Choir is the longest continually serving community choir and the only choir on the Sunshine Coast singing in the tradition of the classic Welsh male voice choirs. The choir performs throughout the year for community groups and to raise funds for local charities or worthwhile causes.
As well as singing the choir has developed a package for organising and presenting concerts. It markets this package to other groups to assist them to put together successful concert presentations.
The choir draws its membership from throughout the Sunshine Coast from Noosa in the north to Glasshouse Mountains in the south and from Mapleton in the hinterland, all gathering to rehearse each Monday evening between 7:00pm and 9:30pm at the Uniting Church, Cnr King Street & Gloucester Road, Buderim.
The Musical Director, Mr Paul Coppens, is a professional musician. Paul has an extensive career composing music and directing musical performances, while the Patron, Mr Andrew Lofthouse, an accomplished musician, comes from the media and entertainment industry.
Being a member of the choir is not necessarily all about singing. Members also enjoy the social and health benefits that their choir involvement engenders. Open to men of all ages, the choir welcomes new members and encourages anyone thinking about joining to talk to a choir member or contact the secretary.
