Sydney Philharmonia Choirs exists to celebrate and share the joy of singing. We do this by presenting choral music for audiences at the highest standards of artistic excellence, both with key artistic partners and through our own programs. We also ensure the future of choral music through training and educating singers, musicians and conductors, by commissioning new works and devising innovative ways of presenting our repertoire. Perhaps most importantly, we create opportunities for anyone with an interest to participate in choral singing. Our performances with the Sydney Symphony and the Sydney Festival have brought us high acclaim, including a Helpmann Award. Our production of Purcell’s King Arthur was nominated for a Limelight Award and Monteverdi’s Vespers in the same year was described by the Sydney Morning Herald as ‘a brilliant creation of sensuous colour, a glorious evening’. Our 10th anniversay ChorusOz performance of in 2015 attracted over 950 choristers, playing to a capacity audience at the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall. Having started life as the Hurlstone Park Choral Society in 1920. We’re looking forward to our Centenary in 2020, under Music Director Brett Weymark, with a new outlook on what the choral tradition means in 21st-century Australia.Sydney Philharmonia Choirs is a registered charity and has DGR status.
