A  HEALTHY  CHORAL  TRADITION  - Queensland Choir 

The Queensland Choir is one of Australia's oldest musical organisations having been founded in

1872 and its Chorus Master, Kevin Power, believes its longevity speaks volumes for the importance of choral singing in the community and the benefits it brings to its members.

Karen Livermore, who has been singing alto in the Queensland Choir for the past 15 years, agrees. She is keeping up a family tradition as a chorister as her mother sang with the Choir for some 20 years before that. 

“I have sung in and worked with choirs for most of my life” Karen said. “Initially at school and church but later through my work as a School Music specialist with the Queensland Education Department.”

“Music has been my profession and I find that the Queensland Choir helps me to keep up my professional standards and keep my musical skills sharp as I am still challenged by the level at which the Choir works, but it also helps me to relax.”

“There have been several studies which have shown that choral singing improves mental stimulation, lowers blood pressure, relaxes muscles and improves singers' overall sense of well-being. I would recommend it to anyone. It is a great social activity which demands physical, mental and emotional involvement and brings great satisfaction.”

The Queensland Choir begins rehearsals shortly for its 2017 season and is currently conducting auditions for new members. The Choir consists of singers of a wide range of ages and social and professional backgrounds and sings a broad repertoire which this year includes some of the great choral classics, opera and musical comedy choruses and light music. The Choir will finish the year with Handel's masterpiece Messiah in the Brisbane City Hall.

Anyone wishing to join the Choir for this year's season should contact the Choir office now on 3895 8188 or by email at enquiries@qldchoir.com. Details of the audition requirements can be found on the Queensland Choir's website www.qldchoir.com

EXPERIENCE THE JOY OF CHORAL SINGING - Queensland Choir

If you love choral music and would enjoy being part of one of Queensland's major choirs then the Queensland Choir would like to hear from you. The Choir will shortly begin rehearsals for its exciting 2017 season and currently has some vacancies in all sections. Singers interested in participating are invited to apply now to join the Choir.

The Queensland Choir is one of Australia's oldest performing arts organisations and is a large community choir with members of all ages and differing levels of experience. “We are a friendly welcoming group” said Chorus Master, Kevin Power, “and we would love to hear from anyone who has an interest in choral singing.” 

The Queensland Choir has presented a series of choral concerts in Brisbane each year since it was founded in 1872, and will begin its 147th  season in 2017 with a performance of choral classics at a brand new venue, the Sunnybank Performing Arts Centre on April 29.

The Choir will also perform in the 4MBS Festival of Classics in St Stephen's Cathedral in June singing Mozart's Requiem and music by J.C. Bach. Later in the year it will present a concert of modern American classics in St John's Cathedral including the Australian premiere of Dan Forrest's beautiful Requiem for the Living and Leonard Bernstein's Chichester Psalms.

The Choir will finish the year with its biennial performance of Brisbane Sings Messiah in the Brisbane City Hall in early December. All of the Choir's major concerts are performed with professional soloists and orchestra. 

“The experience of singing great music as part of a large choir is hugely rewarding.” Kevin Power explained, “The opportunity to work with like-minded people in a collaborative performance that is at the same time both disciplined and fun makes it particularly satisfying.”

The Choir currently has vacancies for all voice types but is especially looking for sopranos and basses for its 2017 season. Full details of the Choir's 2017 programme and the audition requirements are available on its website www.qldchoir.com

Singers wishing to join the Choir in 2017 should contact the Choir office now as auditions will be held shortly and rehearsals resume in early February.
