Unique because of its wide-ranging repertoire and the thoroughness of its training program ( read what Old Boys,parents and boys say), the Australian Boys Choir, a non profit organisation, was formed in 1939 to provide musical education to talented boys. Many choristers who have developed successful professional singing careers acknowledge the importance of the choir in developing their skills.
The Choir has worked under many international conductors, including Zubin Mehta, Jorge Mester, Hiroyuki Iwaki, John Hopkins and Sir Bernard Heinze, and with great orchestras (including the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra and the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra) and many of Australia's leading choirs.
Involvement in major symphonic works has included performances of Bach's Christmas Oratorio, Britten's War Requiem, Mahler's Symphony No. 3, and Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker Suite. The choir has also contributed to the soundtracks of several movies - most notably in the Oscar-nominated musical score of 'Elizabeth', and the Australian box office hit 'The Dish'.
