About

The Brisbane Chamber Choir is an auditioned vocal ensemble of up to twenty singers, established in 1997 and based in Brisbane, Australia.

Under founding musical director Graeme Morton AM, the Brisbane Chamber Choir performs music of all styles and periods with a focus on Australian premiere performances and works of Australian composers.

For the past 20 years the ensemble has delighted concert audiences and produced several landmark recordings.

They have toured nationally to Melbourne (2006), Sydney (2007), and Bangalow (2010), where they were the feature choir of its famous music festival, hosted annually by the Southern Cross Soloists.

They have performed as guest artists of Musica Viva (2014) and enjoyed several collaborations with cornerstone Australian choral ensembles, including the acclaimed Tales of Three Cities with the Adelaide Chamber Singers and the Sydney Chamber Choir (2015).

Closer to home, the Brisbane Chamber Choir regularly perform in conjunction with leading instrumentalists including Camerata, the Badinerie Players, and The Adina String Quartet.

In September 2016, they released Mass of the Dreaming — their most recent and celebrated recording of Australian choral music, featuring the premier recording of the Ross Edwards’ title work, together with the compositions of musical friends including Joseph Twist, Paul Stanhope, and Keren Terpstra.

In this, their 20th anniversary year, the ensemble has been privileged to work with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra under maestro Stephen Layton to perform J. S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor, and perform with internationally renown saxophonist, Diana Tolmie.  Their celebratory 20th anniversary concert for members past and present is eagerly anticipated!

The Brisbane Chamber Choir regularly commissions works and is currently the resident Chamber Choir of St John’s Anglican Cathedral.
