Sisters of Abundance Choir In 2005 a group of ladies took on the role of the Nuns in the Tatachilla Lutheran College production of 'The Sound of Music'. They enjoyed the experience so much they wanted to keep singing. In September 2005 Performing Arts mentor Greg John invited the ladies to form a choir and Sisters of Abundance was born.
Their first performance was in December 2005 when they sang a medley of songs from the film 'Sister Act'. This medley has become their theme song and is often requested at performances. Music teacher and choreographer Gaenor Roeger taught them their first choreography steps and they haven't stopped dancin' since.
10th Anniversary As 2015 marks the 10th Anniversary of the choir they are performing an exciting program called 'Sing It Again, Sista!' The concert program includes specially selected songs taken from each year's concert performances. The Sisters, as the name implies, are a female choir with members from southern suburbs. They gather weekly at Tatachilla Lutheran College, McLaren Vale to sing away life's stresses.
The Sisters sing contemporary music to gospel, movie show tunes, and lilting folk songs; the voices blend and the toes tap in weekly exercise. 'Sisters of Abundance' perform at local events including annual Christmas Carols and Willunga Almond Blossom Festival. New members are always welcome to try for free – no auditions, just friendly singing. Contrary to misconceptions, they are sisters in song, and definitely not Nuns!
Popular songs from their repertoire have included Happy by Pharrell Williams, Leo Sayer's You Make Me Feel Like Dancing, through to songs from Mariah Carey, Queen and catchy tunes in Spanish and Hebrew. The Sisters' unique difference from other choirs is their use of complementary choreography.
