About Us

Newcastle Chamber Choir is an auditioned chamber choir based in Newcastle, NSW. We are known for our vibrant performances of eclectic repertoire. Renaissance multi-choir pieces, contemporary Australian works and pop music are regularly featured in the choir's performances.

Our choristers are dedicated to producing a blend of musicality and intonation. We regularly perform around Australia and tour overseas, sharing our love of choral music. To hone a high level of musicality, we compete in national eisteddfods and international competitions.
