Did you know the Da Capo Singers are celebrating 20 years of music making in 2017. The committee of management are currently planning celebrations to commemorate this special milestone. We would like to extend an invitation to all past members to join us for the coming year of celebrations. Please keep an eye on our website or facebook for updated information.
The original members of Da Capo Singers were graduates of the Melbourne Youth Chorale (formerly Berwick Youth Choir), one of Australia’s leading children’s choirs. The singers wished to continue to perform together, and to continue to sing quality repertoires to the most exacting standards possible. The choir now welcomes members from a range of backgrounds, who share this commitment to quality.
They have a particular commitment to the music of Australian composers, with their performances including several world premieres of such works. The choir’s credits include performances at Hamer Hall, Etihad Stadium and Rod Laver Arena. They have twice been invited to perform at Choralfest, Australia’s only national choral festival. They have released two CDs, have toured regional Victoria on several occasions, and have performed for many local community events and festivals. This is in addition to their annual concert series.
The Da Capo Singers have thrilled audiences with their eclectic music: Australian compositions, art music of all periods, folk songs of many cultures, and occasional excursions into gospel and jazz.
The Da Capo Singers have vacancies for ALL voice types. It isn’t often that a group such as ours advertises a need for sopranos and altos, so take advantage and message or email on 0417 808 088 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information and to arrange an audition time.
