GLEN EIRA CITY CHOIR MELBOURNE
Seeking new conductor 2020
Enjoy singing? We welcome newcomers, especially those who enjoy learning and performing choral music. Join our choir of around 70 male and female voices singing a range of music, from classical to light.
People come from Balwyn to Bayside, to the city of Glen Eira to sing with us in Caulfield under the direction of Jane Elton-Brown, OAM.
No audition is necessary but it does help to be able to read music. Come and try us out. Enjoy a friendly cup of tea at the break.
Our choir strives for excellence and engages professional soloists for major choral works.
Our repertoire is varied, ranging from classical to light music.
In June we performed Mozart’s Requiem as our first concert for the year 2019. Our second concert, Favourites from Opera & Oratorio was performed in October. Our third concert is in December for Christmas and the festive season, including traditional carols with some sacred classical pieces.
