An adult glee club, inspired the hit TV show Glee, will launch in the Blue Mountains on Monday, March 13.

The community choir for adults started in Sydney’s inner west in 2012 before spreading to Melbourne and Brisbane. The new club at Blaxland will be the first choir outside of an inner city metropolitan area.

“The Adult Glee Club is more than a choir. It’s a diverse group of people that contribute to the fresh, modern vibe that is unlike any other community choir,” said founder Sandra Lie.

“Each Glee Club in each location is unique. All people need is a willingness to try. Whether you’ve been part of a choir or vocal group before, you’re an ex-pro performer, solo singer, karaoke champ or shower singer, the Adult Glee Club caters for all. We love the reasons why people join, but most of all we love how their lives are transformed and enriched by being part of Glee.”

After spending the last four years fine-tuning the concept, Ms Lie believes it’s time to make group singing the next big thing, especially as places like the UK have seen 2.8 million Britons join a choir.

The Blaxland Adult Glee Club will be launched under the musical direction of Blue Mountains resident, Henrik Enerberg. The Glee Club will be held every Wednesday at Blaxland Community Centre from 7-8pm. No auditions or experience is required.
