GONDWANA NATIONAL CHOIRS
Established by Lyn Williams in 1997, Gondwana National Choirs are truly national ensembles whose members come from throughout Australia and range in age from 10 – 26. They are the children of dairy farmers and miners, teachers and doctors, engineers, office workers and musicians. They perform music that is close to their hearts: new Australian works which capture the mystery and grandeur of our land and display the cultural diversity of the Australian people. The work of the choirs is a powerful expression of the determination of young Australians to work together to create extraordinary musical ensembles.
They form every January for intensive training and performances across 4 or 5 vocal ensembles with leading national and international conductors at the Gondwana National Choral School, which includes programs for developing composers and conductors. The sound of Gondwana National Choirs’ ensembles is vibrant and energetic, indicative of their intensive rehearsal process and the joy of being together.
NATIONAL CHORAL SCHOOL
Gondwana National Choral School is the premiere choral experience in Australia, bringing together singers, composers and conductors from across Australia. When all these talented young people come together in January for an inspirational and intensive two week season, the results are extraordinary.
