Sydney Chamber Choir

Booking / Enquiry


Widely recognised as one of Australia's finest choirs, Sydney Chamber Choir celebrated its 25th anniversary in 2000. The Choir performs a wide range of choral music from the 12th to the 21st centuries. The Choir's repertoire includes Renaissance and Baroque music, well known masterpieces of recent centuries, and contemporary Australian works - the latter often commissioned and premiered by the Choir. The Choir has been a pioneer in Sydney performances of Bach and Handel using 18th century instruments and authentic performing techniques.

The Choir presents an annual series of concerts based at the University of Sydney and has toured widely in NSW, ACT, Victoria and Queensland. The Choir has performed with The Australian Opera (now known as Opera Australia) in Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea, the Australian Chamber Orchestra in Haydn's Nelson Mass, and the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Holst's The Planets, and Berlioz' Roméo et Juliette. The Choir was a regular participant in the Horizons festival of Australian music. The Choir is also active in music education, having given numerous master classes and performances for schools, as well as lecture-demonstrations on specific areas of early music for the University of Sydney's Continuing Education Program.

Sydney Chamber Choir has been recorded and broadcast many times by 2MBS-FM and the ABC and has released recordings for Tall Poppies, 2MBS, ABC, Move Records and EMI. The Choir has also recorded sountracks for several feature films and performed in many festivals in the eastern states of Australia.

Sydney Chamber Choir will tour the UK this year and plans to tour Italy in 2004..
