Brisbane Chamber Choir

The Brisbane Chamber Choir is directed by its founding director Graeme Morton.

Brisbane Chamber Choir, under the leadership of founding Director, Dr Graeme Morton AM, was established in 1997 and is one of Australia’s more eclectic ensembles. Combining an auditioned ensemble of musicians from diverse backgrounds, the choir performs in styles ranging from renaissance repertoire to contemporary music.

In 2024 the choir will partner again the Queensland Symphony Orchestra for performances of major works by Handel, Mozart, Beethoven and Bach. Other collaborations have included Flowers of Peace for the Australian War Memorial ‘Requiem’ project, Ensemble Q, Adelaide Chamber Singers/Sydney Chamber Choir, Musica Viva, The Adina String Quartet, The Badinerie Players, Southern Cross Soloists and Camerata.

Brisbane Chamber Choir focuses on commissioning and performing new choral works by Australian composers. In 2024 the choir will showcase works by by Paul Bonnetti, Andrew Ford, Brett McKern and Joseph Twist. In 2023 the chior performed in the inaugural Adelaide Chamber Choir Festival alongside Australia's leading choral ensembles, performing commissioned works by Carl Crossin, Matthew Orlovich, and Andrew Schultz. The choir has released several landmark recordings, including ‘Mass of the Dreaming’ (2016), featuring the premiere recording of Ross Edwards’ title work, together with works by Stephen Leek, Paul Stanhope, Keren Terpstra, and Joseph Twist.

Brisbane Chamber Choir supports the development of choral music in Australia by providing opportunities for the next generation of choral singers through its youth project choir initiative and conducting internships. The choir is currently the resident Chamber Choir of St John’s Anglican Cathedral and an Affiliate Ensemble of the University of Queensland School of Music.
