The Macquarie Singers will be performing alongside the Cowra Vocal Ensemble during a choral weekend in Young.

Forty-seven of the Macquarie Singers from Sydney's north-west will converge on Young on the weekend of May 25 and 26 to join with Hilltops Choir and members of the Cowra Vocal Ensemble for a unique singing experience.

Saturday will see a series of workshops for the singers under the direction of two talented and experienced musical directors - Dr Sarah Penicka-Smith (Macquarie Singers) and Rodney Clancy (Hilltops Choir).

The evening will then be a time to relax with dinner, socialising and an 'open mic' session completing a busy day.

Sunday's activities will include a morning rehearsal in preparation for a public concert at 2pm in the Young Services Club Auditorium.

This concert will showcase a broad range of repertoire from the two choirs.

The finale will feature the 90-strong group of singers presenting their three work-shopped songs.

Concert tickets will only be sold at the door - $15 adults, $10 concession.

The Hilltops Choir, like the Macquarie Singers, is a non-auditioned choir.
