About Pop Choir

Pop Choir was founded in 2014 by performers and vocal coaches, Sharon Stokes and Darryl Moulton. Sharon and Darryl were on a mission to bust the myth that singing is only for the select few.

From their humble beginnings as a tight-knit choir based out of Morrabbin, Pop Choir has shown Australia the benefits of joining a modern choir currently keeping 350+ choristers engaged and looking forward to their next weekly session.

Pop Choir aims to provides all Melbournians with a voice to perform on a stage while reaping the tremendous health benefits of singing in a modern community choir.
