Locals sing their hearts out at pub choir

FOR those who need liquid courage before they're willing to have a crack at karaoke, the pub choir touring throughout Queensland is the perfect way to channel their inner performer.

Kicking off in Charleville on Sunday night, the pub choir involves members of the public splitting into groups and learning a song by scratch and performing a three-verse harmony, all while enjoying a few schooners.

Team member of pub choir John Patterson said the appeal of the pub choir is there's safety in numbers.

"Even for the shyer participants they quickly realise no one could care less whether you're a good or bad singer, it's about being part of the experience,” he said.

About 130 of Charleville's finest singers hit the RSL to belt out their finest rendition of We're All In This Together from the Disney classic High School Musical.

"I think it was the widest age demographic of any performing arts show I've ever seen,” Mr Patterson said.

"Someone had brought their baby and then there were people in their 90s, so it just shows that there's no age limit on singing and having a good time.

"It must have been about four per cent of the population that showed up.”
