Christmas In Ballarat – Music from Sweet Monas Choir

Sweet Mona’s Choir are bringing the festive cheer to Ballarat’s CBD each Saturday in December.

One of Victoria’s longest running gospel and world music choirs. The Monas are famous for their world-class arrangements, created by Barry Deenick (Melbourne Ska Orchestra, Bustamento) Stella Savy, and Valanga Khoza. They’ve worked with some of Australia’s most renowned musicians, including Tim Neal, Venetta Fields, Valanga Khoza, Tony Backhouse and Vika and Linda Bull.

30-40 singers, from a broad range of backgrounds, gender and ages sing together to create astounding harmonies. The choir performs a broad range of contemporary, world and gospel music, including music from the Staple Singers and the Golden Gate Quartet.

Their world music is sourced from around the globe and is often accompanied by percussionist Stella Savy (Los Locos, Ballarat Ska Union). Their sound ranges from a rich, deep resonance to a lively, energetic tone, to haunting melodies that stay with you long after the performance is over.
