It is not worth singing for ourselves; it is nicer if two people sing together. Then more people: hundreds, thousands, until the huge Harmony can be heard, in which we can all be just one, indeed. Then will we be able to say: "May the whole world be happy."

Join us for our matinee of silly nonsense as we explore music that is full of gibberish, tongue twisters, vocables and funny stories. Audiences will sing along with some winter favourites and enjoy our effervescent repertoire!
'Oiseau' (French for bird) is a symbol of our development towards musical independence. As we begin and continue our journey with choral artistry we learn and grow as a joyful community of singers. It also commemorates our logo by Salt Design Co.
