A staple of Australian choral music for over 20 years.
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, it performs music of all styles and periods with a focus on Australian premiere performances and works of Australian composers.
For more than 20 years the ensemble has delighted concert audiences at home and across Australian and has produced several landmark recordings.
In 2014 they were guest artists of Musica Viva in Sydney and collaborated with cornerstone Australian choral ensembles, the Adelaide Chamber Singers and the Sydney Chamber Choir, in A Tale of Three Cities in 2015. The ensemble regularly performs with leading instrumentalists including Camerata, the Badinerie Players, and The Adina String Quartet.
In 2016, they released Mass of the Dreaming, a celebrated recording of Australian choral music, featuring the premier recording of the Ross Edwards’ title work, together with compositions of musical friends Joseph Twist, Paul Stanhope, and Keren Terpstra.
In their 20th anniversary year, the ensemble was privileged to work with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra under maestro Stephen Layton in a performance of J.S. Bach’s Mass in B Minor – since broadcast twice on ABC Classic FM – and share the concert platform with internationally renown saxophonist, Diana Tolmie.
The Brisbane Chamber Choir regularly commissions works and is currently the resident Chamber Choir of St John’s Anglican Cathedral.
