A champion of Australian choral music and the heart of the Brisbane Chamber Choir.
Graeme Morton AM is the founding Director of the Brisbane Chamber Choir.
He is a Senior Lecturer and Choral Conducting Fellow at the University of Queensland and the Director of Choral Music at St John’s Anglican Cathedral, Brisbane.
For twenty-five years he was Director of Music at St Peters Lutheran College, where he founded the renowned St Peters Chorale. During this time, he co-founded The Australian Voices with Stephen Leek and served as its inaugural Director.
Never tiring to pursue exciting new choral works for his singers and their audiences alike, Graeme is responsible for commissioning and recording many works now regarded as Australian choral classics. He tours and lectures on choral conducting, both in Australia and overseas. As a Churchill Fellow he observed choral leadership in both the United States and Canada.
He has received a Prime Minister’s Medal and in 2011 was the recipient of the Lord Mayor’s Australia Day Cultural Award. Graeme holds a Master of Music (Organ) from the University of Queensland, and as a composer, is published by Augsburg Fortress, Kjos Music, and Morton Music.
