Ecopella is an environmental choir that sings about the beauty of our world and the struggle to protect it from exploitation and destruction. Ecopella’s strong environmental message encourages positive change in people's thoughts and actions and offers encouragement to a wide variety of green organisations.

Ecopella at Majors Creek, 2008

Ecopella originated in Sydney in 1998 as an offshoot of the Solidarity Choir and now has branches in the Blue Mountains, Illawarra, and Canberra as well. They sing at a wide range of events, including benefit concerts, protests, campaign launches, community gatherings and folk festivals.

Ecopella have released two CDs - the most recent is Songs in the Key of Green and celebrates a decade of environmental harmony. The album is a collection of beautiful and haunting songs with the occasional satirical one thrown in for good measure. - Choir enquiries please call Miguel Heatwole - (02) 9810 4601
