Club History:

Maleny Singers was formed in August 2003 by a small group of friends in Maleny.

The idea was to rehearse weekly and perform a program of carols at Christmas.    It soon became apparent that to practice in somebody's lounge room was inadequate.

The Christmas Festival, held at Maleny Uniting Church, was a great success and by this time the choir numbered sixteen members.     From the outset it had been decided that all monies raised by Maleny Singers would be donated to charity and in particular local charities such as Maleny Hospital, Maleny Rural Fire Brigade and others.

Maleny Singers have gone on to perform a number of Gilbert and Sullivan operas over the following years including 'Trial by Jury' at the Showground Pavilion in 2005, 'HMS Pinafore' at The High School Assembly Hall in 2006, 'The Gondoliers' also at the High School in 2007, 'The Mikado', accompanied by members of Sunshine Coast Orchestra, in Maleny Community Centre in 2008, Orpheus in 2009 and Patience in 2010.   Currently the choir is rehearsing for its next production.

Maleny Singers has performed concerts with a number of orchestras including the St Lucia Orchestra from Brisbane, the Sunshine Coast Orchestra and the Sunshine Coast Youth Orchestra and has been led at all times by their resident conductor Margaret Taylor.

In 2006, Maleny Singers became an incorporated association.    Since the beginning in 2003, the group has raised more than $30,000 for local charities.

In 2008, The Maleny Singers joined with The Maleny Players to form Maleny Performing Arts Group Inc.
