Shortis and Simpson run a world music choir, Worldly Goods.
WORLDLY GOODS is a community choir open to all comers. The repertoire is world music. No music reading skills or previous experience required. The joy of singing is the important ingredient.
Worldly Goods was formed in 1998, and has just celebrated 25 years with an informal performance and party at the Polish Club in Canberra.
The choir has appeared as part of festivals, in large community arts projects, theatrical extravaganzas, nnd at their own concerts.
An active workshop program is part of the Worldly Goods calendar, and workshop leaders have included Tony Backhouse, Frankie Armstrong, Margret RoadKnight, Nino Tsitsishnili and Joseph Jordanian, Jeannie Lewis, and Rachel Hoare.
The choir meets each Monday during school terms at Gorman House Arts Centre, Ainslie Avenue, Braddon, ACT.
