Sopranos, altos, tenors and basses? A wall of voices singing as one? What could be more thrilling than the sound of one of Australia's finest choirs? Heavenly choruses, majestic oratorio, antiphons and chorales fill the air with delicious harmonies and rhythmic precision. From Bach to Bjork, from Palestrina to pop, from Beethoven to barbershop, there is almost nothing that can't be done by a top-class choir with its indefatigable conductor at the helm!

The performing group of the Choir has a regular touring program including, in recent years, Indonesia and the USA. The Choir has worked under many international conductors and with great orchestras.
