Join us for Brisbane Sings Messiah this December!

Have you ever dreamed of singing Händel’s Messiah with an orchestra at Brisbane City Hall?

Then come and join the Queensland Choir for this rare opportunity!!!

Brisbane Sings Messiah provides an exciting opportunity for members of the public who would love to sing in a performance of this great masterpiece, but who do not have the time to commit to regular choir membership throughout the year, to join with more than 150 other performers (including the members of The Queensland Choir), professional soloists and orchestra for a strictly limited rehearsal period to prepare this magnificent work for a performance in the Brisbane City Hall on 1st December.

Participation is open to all singers aged 18 years and older and there is no audition! However, this is not a ‘scratch’ performance of Messiah and to be eligible you must be able to attend all the scheduled rehearsals.
Prior familiarity with the music and knowledge of music notation will also be an advantage. Registration Fees Apply.

There are limited places to fill so please click here for the Brisbane Sings Messiah Information sheet to act now!

Please join us for this exciting event!

Sing With Us

If you are interested in becoming a member and singing with The Queensland Choir, here you can find out how to join us. If you have a passion for singing and would like to perform as part of an elite vocal ensemble, we invite you to audition for us.

Some prefer to sit in on a rehearsal before deciding to join us, and if this is you, you would be most welcome at one of our Monday evening rehearsals in Brisbane. Just call the choir office to let us know you are coming so that we can welcome you and provide you with music for the evening concerned.

Many of our  choristers have completed courses in vocal studies and, like all members, they continue to develop their voices through master classes and choral workshops. This is part of their commitment to excellence in choral performance, something that we value highly.

Audition Documentation

To ensure a consistently high standard of performance, all applicants must audition, along with current members, every year.  Those who are accepted into the choir must commit to a busy performance schedule in and around Brisbane.

Singers interested in joining us  are welcome to apply for an audition, or alternatively to attend rehearsals as a guest and have a sing with us. This can help you to decide whether the Queensland Choir is the right chorus for you.

Major auditions are held in Brisbane at the end of January each year but we also run them throughout the year by appointment. These are held  during the regular Monday rehearsals.
