The choir has performed for a wide range of events over the years from fundraising concerts, weddings, festivals and graduation ceremonies, to high profile corporate functions and radio broadcasts. Each year the choir hosts two special functions with proceeds being donated to a worthy charity. 

Under the direction of current Musical Director Stephen Clarke, the Honeybees have embraced exciting new repertoire and performance opportunities. With talented soloists and an excellent ensemble sound, the Honeybees are highly engaging and entertaining.

Annual membership is $50 and will be available at the door.
