The Brandenburg Choir!

A highlight of the Brandenburg concerts for many, the Brandenburg Choir is renowned for its astonishing vocal blend and technical virtuosity. Established by Paul Dyer in 1999 to perform in the first-ever Noël! Noël! Brandenburg Christmas concert, the Choir has become a regular part of the Brandenburg year.

“Music from earlier centuries often requires the sound of the human voice. I wanted to put a group of excellent singers together adding a rich compliment to our period instruments. Our Choir is a ravishing blend of radiant Sydney singers”, says Paul Dyer.

Originally 13 voices, the Choir joined the Orchestra and wowed audiences with truly beautiful renditions of both familiar Christmas favourites and rarely-heard sacred works, with music from the eleventh century to the baroque. It was an instant success combining musical, literary and scholarly performances that thrilled audiences and critics alike.

“The choir and orchestra were at their best, giving an elated performance, deserving of every bit of the foot-stamping, cheering ovation.” SMH

In addition to the annual Noël! Noël! concerts, the Choir now regularly perform as part of the Brandenburg’s annual subscription season. Bach Cantatas, Handel’s Coronation Anthems, and Mozart’s great Requiem and Coronation Mass are among the best loved performances of the Choir. Their performance of Handel’s Ode for St Cecilia’s Day received critical acclaim, with the Sydney Morning Herald declaring: “[The Brandenburg Choir is] one of the finest choruses one could put together in this town.”
