The Queensland Festival Chorus
The Queensland Festival Chorus is a Brisbane based Chorus under the direction of Chorusmaster Alison Rogers.
The ensemble consists of choristers from the Brisbane community and artists from the Vocal Manoeuvres Academy who have joined forces specifically to create an outstanding symphonic chorus.
Highlights for the Chorus have included performing Holst "The Planets" with the Orchestra of the Music Makers under the baton of Tze Law Chan in Singapore's Esplanade Concert Hall and Mahler's Second and Eighth Symphonies also with the Orchestra of the Music Makers in the Esplanade Concert Hall in Singapore. The Queensland Festival Chorus formed the Core to the Massed Chorus in a performance of Havergal Brien's Symphony Number 1 (The Gothic) for which a documentary was commissioned by the Australian Broadcasting Corporation and aired at the Melbourne International Film Festival.
