Gondwana Choirs is the leader in Australian choral performance, shaping the Australian sound through the creation and presentation of innovative new work, and providing opportunities to all talented young Australians through world class training by leading artists.
The Sydney Children’s Choir is highly regarded for its unique performance style. Our open and honest style of musical performance is a reflection of our particular rehearsal techniques and of our respect for the young people we work with. Children are placed into the choir we feel is most appropriate for their level of musical and personal maturity. We aim to make each child feel challenged and happy.
Our Choral Training Program is based on the core values of our organisation: excellence, professionalism, creativity, accessibility and community. With these values in mind, we strive to develop each chorister’s skills in the following areas:
- Choral Singing
- Artistic expression and style
- Professionalism (on and off stage)
- Aural skills, music theory and sight singing
The development of these skills through our Choral Training Program leads to a wide range of positive outcomes for each individual chorister, including:
- Dedication, focus and commitment
- Self-discipline and maturity
- Increased self-awareness and self-confidence
- A love of singing and music
