ARC, Amateur Repertory Company Incorporated, is a not for profit community arts organisation that commenced as a youth theatre group in 1996. ARC has two branches supported by an over-arching committee of management. ARC celebrated our 20 Year Anniversary with a special concert on Saturday 28th May 2016 at Banyule Theatre, Heidelberg involving ARC Children’s Choir, ARCappella Choir and performers from ARC theatre.
ARC Choir Branch
Community choirs and the benefits of community singing have become popular around Melbourne over the past few years as they provide a non-traditional recreational activity and allow individuals to feel part of something bigger, connected their local community, promoting health and well-being.
Our choir branch includes the ARC Children’s Choir and ARCappella . ARCappella is an un-auditioned adult community choir for people of all ages and musical ability. ARCappella rehearses weekly in Preston and performs across Darebin and Banyule.
We encourage parents and carers of our Children’s Choir participants to come and try ARCappella and enjoy some singing too! ARCappella rehearses on Wednesday evenings in Preston during school terms.
