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

    The start of 2022 has been a great success for the Australian Boys Choral Institute. We have had an uninterrupted term of rehearsals, two concerts, and an Installations ceremony celebrating the achievements of our boys and young men with promotions to the next level of the Choir.

  • THE SOUND OF COLLABORATION
    The ABCI is incredibly fortunate to enjoy an ongoing collaboration with SAE Creative Media Institute. Choir parent Gareth Parton, SAE’s Audio Department Co-ordinator, brokered the collaboration to impart ‘real world’ learning opportunities for SAE students while generating invaluable archival recordings of ABCI performances.
  • SPOTLIGHT: FORMER HEAD CHORISTER – TIM MATTHEWS STAINDL
    In 2004, a young chorister stood in uniform on stage and received a badge in front of family, friends, and the entire ABCI community. It would be some time before he fully realised the distinction conferred when the badge was pinned to his lapel.
