Townsville Choral Society originated in 1906 as the Townsville Musical Union. Over our 110 year history we've produced over 100 musicals and performed unmeasurable choral items to the public and for the Townsville community.
Our purpose is to study, teach and perform choral music and works with musical content, and to foster the development of the art and science of music.
We provide opportunities for amateur performers in Townsville and the surrounding North Queensland region to gain confidence through performance in musicals, cabaret nights, eisteddfods, festivals or concerts and various member events.
Each year our Choir enters a variety of eisteddfodau items at the North Queensland Eisteddfod. This includes complex choral repertoire arranged for small ensemble groups as well as large choirs.
Our musical productions are known to be visually stunning while showcasing the excellence of local performers. Many of our patrons let us know when they enjoy our productions. We encourage you to read their reviews on Facebook.
Our ChoralAires are an active, weekly-meeting social singing group of predominantly seniors and retirees. ChoralAires rehearse for an annual concert and visit local aged care facilities, hospitals and community spaces to share the joy of music and singing.
