Welcome

Choir singing Messiah Dec 2014

The Manly Warringah Choir has cancelled concerts planned for 2021.   Rehearsals are suspended until further notice.   We hope to resume activity early in 2022.

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.

The Choir’s operations for 2021 are all subject to the Covid 19 Policy and Plan, which aims to not only fit to Government regulations but also seeks all means to minimise the risk of infection.  Click here to view the document.

As at June 2021 there are are several vacancies for Tenors and Basses but regretfully no vacancies for Sopranos and Altos.
