The QPAC Choir is a contemporary community choir for adults aged 18 years and over. Rehearsing on Monday evenings, the QPAC Choir provides access to imaginative repertoires, challenging skill development, social opportunities, and public performances.
The QPAC Choir is part of QPAC’s artistic program as part of the Public Engagement and Learning portfolio.
Led by Choirmaster Timothy Sherlock and supported by accompanist Tina Liu, the choir has presented a range of exhilarating performances and collaborations in a wide range of styles and genres – from choral masterworks, to pop and jazz standards; from Broadway showtunes to contemporary Australian choral compositions.
Throughout the year, the choir takes part in a variety of performance opportunities. These include key events in the QPAC calendar, including an annual QPAC Choir Showcase concert, open rehearsals, Brisbane Open House and the Spirit of Christmas concerts.
In addition to live performance, the choir has recorded two CD’s: Spirit of Christmas (2013) and Nightsongs (2016).
The QPAC Choir program includes a smaller ensemble (30-40 voices) auditioned from the larger choir. The QPAC Chamber Choir undertakes additional rehearsals throughout the year and performs regularly as a featured ensemble, including as part of the True North performance, broadcast on Queensland Day (6 June) 2020.
Auditions for the QPAC Choir are held annually in a friendly, supportive environment. Music reading skills and/or singing experience are considered an advantage, however members of various abilities and experience are welcome.
Please note that due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the full QPAC Choir program is not being offered in 2021 and there will be no auditions for the time being. This page will be updated when the situation changes.
