Rehearsing Monday nights, the QPAC Choir provides access to skill development and public performance across an imaginative repertoire of music. QPAC Choir Chorus Master, Tim Sherlock invites people aged 17 years and over to audition. “Taking part in the QPAC Choir offers a great community experience with other like-minded music lovers, as well as an opportunity to extend singing and performance ability.

 “Membership includes ongoing skill development within weekly rehearsals and participation in public performances at events such as the QPAC’s Out of the Box Festival for Children and the Centre’s annual Spirit of Christmas concert. The choir will also stage a special QPAC choir performance in June this year,” said Mr Sherlock.
