Sydney Chamber Choir

Celebrating 35 years

Sydney Chamber Choir celebrates its 35th anniversary in 2010. Founded in 1975, the Choir has forged a reputation as one of Australia’s leading choral ensembles. It is especially renowned for its interpretations of Renaissance and Baroque works and as a champion of contemporary Australian choral music, having commissioned and premiered works by many established and emerging Australian composers. Musical Director Paul Stanhope, himself a composer of international reputation, was appointed in 2006.

Sydney Chamber Choir has toured widely and in 2007 performed with The Tallis Scholars on the Sydney leg of their Australian tour. In 2009, Sydney Chamber Choir was awarded Third Prize in the Tolosa International Choral Competition. The Choir’s performances are regularly broadcast across the country on ABC Classic FM, and CD recordings are available on the ABC Classics and Tall Poppies labels.

"I am delighted to be associated with such a marvelous ensemble. Working with Sydney Chamber Choir is a pleasure; their musicianship is outstanding and their sound sublime."
