Chorusmaster

June Tyzack became Chorusmaster of the TSO Chorus in 2001 following a career in Sydney with Opera Australia and the Opera Studio of the Sydney Conservatorium. Under her direction, the TSO Chorus has given performances in Hobart and regional Tasmania, and through her initiative, collaboration with interstate choirs has resulted in performances with Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Victorian Opera, Adelaide Festival Chorus, West Australian Symphony Orchestra Chorus, and in Hong Kong with the WASO Chorus and Hong Kong Philharmonic. She has devised and directed cutting-edge a cappella TSO Chorus programs for a number of festivals, including in the Spiegeltent for Ten Days on the Island, Mona Foma, Dark Mofo, Synaesthesia and Synaesthesia+, and for the TSO, she directed Bach’s St Matthew Passion. In 2017 she facilitated a group of TSO choristers to participate in the Mitsingonzert in the Berlin Philharmonie, and this year, in the Palau de la Musica, Barcelona. While on tour, she will conduct the TSO Chorus in a concert of Australian repertoire featuring a commissioned work by Lisa Cheney.  She is responsible for the TSO surtitles which this year include Bach’s St John Passion and Mendelssohn’s symphony-cantata Lobgesang.
