With its home base in Melbourne, The internationally acclaimed Australian Chamber Choir was founded by its current director, Douglas Lawrence in 2007. In July that year, the choir undertook a 20-concert tour of Europe to great acclaim: “There are days when something of heaven seems to touch the earth. Thank you for giving us just one of those such days” (Stefen Wegener, Presenter, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Gedächtnisskirche Series, Berlin, July 14, 2007). The ACC tours to Europe every second year and to regional Victoria and Interstate regularly. To promote and benefit Australia's performing arts landscape, ACC pays its performers thereby promoting their careers as professional musicians. The ACC relies on the goodwill of volunteers and philanthropic support to achieve its financial goals and has plans to expand its performance schedule to more venues across Australia in the next two years.
