Recent relaxation of Covid restrictions allows Choir activities to re-start, with rehearsals having re-commenced on March 3rd. The first concert of 2022, due to take place on May 22nd, has been postponed to July 17th.
The Manly Warringah Choir is a community choir based on the Northern Beaches and adjacent suburbs of Sydney. We perform largely classical choral music, typically in three concerts each year, accompanied by professional instrumentalists and soloists. Rehearsals are held every Thursday evening at Collaroy Plateau Public School.
Dr Carlos Alvarado, a very experienced and highly accomplished musician trained in Moscow and Stuttgart, has been our Conductor since 2003. Choir members range from professional musicians to people who cannot read music and learn it by heart. But, whatever our musical ability, we all share a passion for classical choral music.
Recent concerts include Bach’s St John Passion and Magnificat, Bernstein’s Suite from West Side Story, Brahms’ A German Requiem, Haydn’s Paukenmesse and Nelson Mass, Karl Jenkins’ Stella Natalis, Mozart’s Requiem and Great Mass in C Minor, Vivaldi’s Gloria, Pergolesi’s Magnificat and Handel’s Messiah.
Over the past several years, our concerts have proved increasingly popular with local audiences, with tickets selling rapidly and full houses being the norm.
As at May 2022 there are are vacancies in all voices except Altos. Click here for more information on how the Choir works and how to apply for membership.
