Star Community Choir

The Star Community Choir brings together past students, staff, parents and friends over the joy of music. Led by past student and Stacella Coordinator, Annemarie Sharry, the Choir meets each Thursday evening at the college for 75 minutes through the school term.

The Choir was created by the Past Students’ Association to coincide with the College’s 140th anniversary in 2023.

Friends of Star of the Sea College are invited to join the choir and enjoy the choral delights of a variety of contemporary, jazz, gospel and world music. Come along and join our amazing Star community as we make beautiful music together.
