Not long to go now before ANCA’s national choralfest! We’re really excited to be heading over to Brisbane to headline both the ANCA festival and the concurrently-run Pemulwuy Male Voices festival during the last week of June. This will be the second time we’ve gone to Pemulwuy but our first time headlining the ANCA festival, and what’s more this time members of the chorus including our director, Jonathan, will be playing key educational roles in heading up the youth program. We’re really excited to be performing in a number of concerts up in Brisbane, and we’ll even be premiering a new setting of the Requiem mass composed by our very own Mitchel Bartel.

We’re not just all about our Brisbane tour though. We’ve got a whole bunch of concerts lined up for the second half of the year, including an exploration of our more classical side, and a performance with a visiting celebrity. We can’t tell you everything yet, so make sure you keep an eye out. There’s some really exciting stuff on the horizon. Stay tuned!
