Swiss Companion Singers

We are a bunch of lovely Swiss living in Melbourne that come together every fourth Thursday of the month at the Swiss Club and love to sing songs in all 4 languages that are spoken in Switzerland.

We had the pleasure to do a sing along for our own member Koebi Fatzer in March. He is at Tabulam and unfortunately can’t attend our rehearsals anymore.  We had a very special occasion to come together and sing for Dora Higgins who celebrated her 100th birthday in May this year! That was something very dear to our hearts and we really enjoyed bringing some home bound tunes to her special celebrations. We are also very grateful that we were asked to participate in the entertainment part at the Swiss National Picnic Day to celebrate our 1st August that we enjoyed very much to bring some known tunes to the big audience at that event.

Singing brings happiness and joy to us as well as a connection to our homeland. The companionship under each of our members is something that we treasure among us dearly. After our rehearsals we stay together, have something to eat, and take time to chat with each other. Especially after COVID we found that we all really missed our get-togethers and now celebrate that part after rehearsals more consciously. We are busy rehearsing as we will be singing at the Kaffi Klatsch in Mid-September and at the Swiss Festival in November.

We meet every 4th Thursday of the month at 4.45pm at the Swiss Club, anyone is welcome to join us!
