Membership

This is general information about what it means to be a singing member of the Brisbane Chorale.

More information about how to join us and how to arrange an audition is available.

If you’d like to observe the Brisbane Chorale in action you are very welcome to attend a rehearsal or two before you audition. Come along and meet the Music Director, watch and hear us rehearse.

What do we ask of our singing members?
  • A high level of commitment and rehearsal attendance
  • Professional concert and rehearsal etiquette
  • Apology sent to the Membership Secretary if a rehearsal is to be missed
  • Sufficient ‘homework’ so that rehearsal time is spent on refining the music itself, rather than only learning notes
  • Payment of fees (prior to the issue of any music)
  • Purchase of concert dress

 

Rehearsals

Rehearsals are held every Wednesday evening at the Griffith University Queensland Conservatorium of Music, South Bank, from 7:15pm to 9:50pm.
