Alumni

This year marks the 25th Anniversary of the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra Chorus.

The Chorus was established as an opera chorus and gave its first performance – Verdi’s La Traviata – in 1992. Since then its repertoire has broadened to include operas, requiems, masses, symphonies and a cappella works.

Several founding members continue to sing with the Chorus, which is a testament to the experience offered by the TSO. Choristers are privileged to sing regularly with professional orchestras and immerse themselves in diverse repertoire featuring high-calibre conductors and soloists, while being part of a close-knit family.

In celebration of the Chorus’ achievements and reaching this significant milestone, the TSO Chorus Alumni has been formed. All past choristers, chorusmasters, repetiteurs and administrators are encouraged to join and keep in touch with the Chorus and participate in a range of exciting events during the year.
