The Honeybees is a non-profit community choir established primarily for the purpose of promoting & encouraging a cappella singing - in particular, gospel music - in Australia. We are not a religious choir, but are united in our love of the uplifting and passionate quality of the gospel genre. Our repertoire includes traditional gospel songs, as well as modern gospel-inspired numbers, which draw on related musical styles such as soul, R & B and jazz. We enjoy performing and are involved in approximately 12 gigs each year. Commitment to rehearsals and to performing at gigs is a requirement of membership. We choose to perform – either paid or unpaid – at gigs which have meaning to us and which can signal support for an issue, a cause, or a service. Over the years, we have performed in many venues at a wide range of events including concerts and special services, weddings and funerals, fundraising events, book launches and theatrical performances.
