EXCELLENCE IS...

WELCOME

At the Australian Boys Choir we provide exceptional music education and training to support talented young singers to grow, learn and shine. We provide boys with the tools and opportunities to develop their musical and life skills. We empower boys to find their voices and encourage them to have a go.

Our people come from a wide variety of cultural and linguistic backgrounds. We embrace diversity in its many forms and we give everyone a chance.

We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples as the First Australians and Traditional Custodians of the lands where we live, learn and work.

We work with families to meet our students’ needs, and work together to help nurture growth. We believe in the strength of the individual and the music we make helps inspire us all to strive for excellence. Above all, we are committed to being inclusive, welcoming and supportive of all members of the Australian Boys Choir community.

Where will choral music take you?

  • FROM THE CHAIR

    'I am an optimist. It does not seem too much use being anything else.’ – Winston Churchill
    While it feels like we have spent most of this year in lockdowns and rehearsing online, we were lucky enough to have two great concerts in the first half of the year, which is more than we achieved for the whole of the COVID-19 affected 2020!

  • FOR THE LOVE OF VOLUNTEERING
    Deb Damman’s outstanding contribution to the Choir over many years sees her named as the inaugural recipient of the Elwynne Stafford Award for volunteers in 2021. The accolade is named for Honorary Life Member and ABCI volunteer, Elwynne Stafford, who influenced a generation of singers.
  • CHANGING VOICES: THE JOURNEY FORWARD
    Probationers become Tyros, Tyros graduate to become Junior Singers and Senior Singers, and Performing Squad members keen to grow their leadership might just achieve the coveted rank of Chorister. And, of course, the vocal gift that brought boys to ABCI in the first place proliferates as they transform into young men.
