Katandra means ‘song of the birds’.
It is a word from the Gurangai language spoken by the traditional people of the Northern Beaches area in Sydney. The name is ideally suited to our beautiful South Coast environs… and a perfect name for a womens a cappella choir!
Katandra Berry was established in July 2017 and Katandra Kiama began in May 2018. Each group is conducted by experienced choral director - Antoinette Raynal. Katandra’s focus is on supporting women both within the choir and in the greater community. Proceeds from all Katandra performances are donated to women’s initiatives in our area.
To date we have performed concerts in Berry, Camberwarra Winery, sung Carols at Stocklands Mall in Nowraand the Kiama Carols in the park, performed at the Jazz Brunch in Jamberoo and had the fabulous 2018 THE BIG SWING at the Gerringong Town Hall. Proceeds from our concerts have gone to the Childrens Medical Research Institute, Salt Ministry and Red Cross.
