Gold Coast City Choir inc
The choir, first established in 1969 and incorporated in 1991, has a current enrollment of 65 with singers of a wide range of ages. It is a SATB choir – that is, it sings music written for Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.
The choir sings in many venues, from churches to the Arts Centre Gold Coast, local theatres and halls. In 2014, the choir sang in the auditorium at Jupiter’s Casino, as the backing choir for a show there. As well as its normal concert programme, the choir also sings at various community events through the year.
As the Gold Coast’s premier four-part choir we aim to
- encourage participation in, and appreciation of, choral singing
- develop and promote a quality, community based, mixed voice choir
- promote public awareness of choral music
