Be inspired and thrilled by some fabulous singing at the Sunshine Coast Choral Festival at the Maroochy Baptist Community Centre starting at 1.30pm on Saturday 29 May.

The Australian Voices and the Matthew Flinders Anglican College Chorale will be guest choirs when nine Sunshine Coast choirs and singing groups gather to celebrate their love of singing.

The Australian Voices is one of Australia's most innovative ensembles and has won many international awards and honours.  The singers, aged between 17 and 28 come from different Australian cities and commit to a rigorous professional schedule of concerts and workshops, both in Australia and overseas.

The Matthew Flinders Anglican College Chorale is a choir of students who range in age from 11 to 18 years.  The choir has been awarded first place in the Sunshine Coast Junior Eisteddfod for the past three years. In June this year it will travel to Canberra to perform in the Great Hall at Parliament House with the James McCusker Orchestra.

'We are thrilled to have two guest choirs that show choral music has much to offer youth and young adults,' said John Woodlock, President of the Festival.

If choral music stirs your soul or you have been thinking of joining a choir on the Coast, come and hear Cool Harmonies, Heartsong, InsingC, New World Rhythm, Noosa Chorale, Out of the Blue, Sunshine Coast Choral Society, Sunshine Statesmen and Tapestry.

These groups sing a wide variety of music including classical choral music, jazz, gospel and world music, so there is a choir for everyone and the concert will appeal to all musical tastes.  

The nine regional singing groups will each sing works specially chosen for the Sunshine Coast Festival Concert.  The guest choirs will then perform and, as a finale, all choirs will come together as a massed choir of over 250 people to sing some fabulous classical choral pieces such as the Hallelujah Chorus, Cwm Rhondda and world music songs.

The massed choir will be conducted by Brian Martin, Adrian King and Gordon Hamilton and the Master of Ceremonies for the Concert will be Graham Schultz.  There will be an easily learnt concluding piece which all choirs and audience can sing together.  

Tickets will be able to be purchased at the door and are concession priced at $12 with light refreshments included. Free admission for children 12 or under. Enquiries 5448 5487.
