People who love to sing are being urged to start 2018 on a high note by joining one of the state’s premier choirs, the Queensland Choir, for a year of spectacular concerts.
The Queensland Choir’s chorus master Kevin Power says this year’s concert program ranges from Baroque Brilliance on April 27, with the thrilling sound of trumpets, drums and orchestra accompanying festive choral music in St Stephen’s Cathedral, to a Choral Spectacular in Brisbane City Hall on June 3 and the ever-popular Sunday Serenades in bayside Wynnum and Sandgate in August.
“We will also perform one of Handel’s greatest dramatic oratorios, Samson, on October 28 at the Old Museum building in Bowen Hills, and will finish the year with our Sounds of the Season Christmas concert on December 9 at the same venue,” he says.
“Singing with the Queensland Choir is a great experience and offers the opportunity to perform with top soloists and orchestras in Brisbane’s major concert venues. We sing a wide range of classical and modern works and have a lot of fun rehearsing.”
‘’Auditions are now open for anyone interested in joining the choir, which rehearses each week at New Farm, and sopranos and basses especially are encouraged to join us in 2018.”
Established in 1872, the Queensland Choir has been making great choral music for more than 145 years and is renowned for its biennial Brisbane Sings Messiah performances in City Hall.
“No equipment is necessary, and we are a friendly group that would welcome new members to share our love of making music, with the added bonus that singing is good for your health.”
