Calling all singers

The Geelong Chorale is partnering with The Geelong Symphony Orchestra for ‘Last Night of the Proms’ on Friday evening, October 27, and Saturday afternoon, October 28 2017.

We are seeking any interested singers who would like to augment our choir and be a part of these exciting concerts to be held at Costa Hall.
The Geelong Chorale will perform Polovtsian Dances by Borodin in the first half of the program. The second half of the concert will include the usual Proms’ fare including Jerusalem, Land of Hope and Glory, I Vow to Thee, My Country, as well as the Toreador Song from Carmen.

It is a wonderful opportunity to sing with a full symphony orchestra on the big stage of Costa Hall in front of a large audience. The conductor for this concert is Kevin Cameron, Director of Middle School Music at Geelong Grammar School.

​Rehearsals commence Monday September 4 2017, and are held weekly every Monday night from 7.30pm to 9.30pm at St Luke’s Uniting Church, Barrabool Rd, Highton. Rehearsals with the orchestra will be held on the afternoon of Sunday October 8 (venue to be advised); and in the evening of Monday October 23 at Costa Hall; and Thursday October 26 at Costa Hall.

You will need to be able to read music, sing in tune and attend most rehearsals. Our musical director, Allister Cox, will listen to you sing to ensure you are placed in the correct position in the choir. Cost will be a one off payment of $20 to cover insurance.

If you would like to join us in this very exciting venture, please let our secretary, Angela West, know your name, email address and what part you sing, and we will add you to the list!
