Chinese Tenants Choir

We welcome the melodic stylings of the Chinese Tenant Choir at #NHCSydney. The Choir are a musical group of elderly residents from the Riverwood housing community.

The group formed from the community of senior living units at Riverwood created by SGCH. With 64% of tenants single, and 67% culturally and linguistically diverse, SGCH worked with the tenants to identify and offer support and services – one of the groups that formed is the Chinese Choir.

The group of 23 members meets twice weekly to practise songs, enjoy the community atmosphere and make friends in a harmonious, welcoming environment.

The Chinese Tenant Choir are in high demand, regularly performing at a wide range of events including Harmony Day, Christmas events, Chinese New Year for SGCH, the Riverwood Community Centre and local developer, Payce.
