What is a Mob?
A Mob is an Australian word for a group of people. Given the rural nature of our Choir and our connection to the Kangaroo March Re-enactment, we decided to call our Choir groups "Mobs". There are different Mobs in the choir ranging from Local Choir Mobs to our Studio Mob. See below for more details.
Local Choir Mobs
A Local Choir Mob is a section of the Choir that meets with the support of their local RSL Sub-branch and Club. Each Local Choir Mob has a Mob Leader who looks after the practices and performances in their local area. All school aged young people and their families are welcome to join. Local Choir Mobs will perform at local commemorative events such as Anzac Day and Remembrance Day in their area.
In the case where there is no local RSL Club or Sub-branch, a Local Choir Mob can start in that town as a Satellite Mob of the closest town where there is RSL presence and support. The Satellite Mob will do their Practice+ in a local Memorial Hall or other suitable venue and 3-4 times a year or as necessary, may also join the main Mob for Practice+ at the RSL Club and for performances where possible.
The Showcase Choir Mob consists of our Musiclub and 21st Century Leadership Academy members. This Mob is chosen not just for singing and performing ability, but by leadership qualities and young people who promote the culture of our Choir.
The Studio Choir will audition from the Showcase Choir and consists of the best singers from the Showcase choir for the purpose of professional recordings and performances. Studio Choir members are chosen as much on character and leadership as talent and vocal ability.
