Join the National Boys Choir of Australia Alumni

The National Boys Choir of Australia has established itself as one of the country’s premier treble choirs, renowned for its exceptional vocal production rooted in the traditional European bel canto style. Choristers are expected to demonstrate a high level of commitment and self-discipline, attending weekly or bi-weekly rehearsals and participating in regular music workshops. This rigorous training enables the boys to master challenging repertoires, from early motets and contemporary commissioned works to fully staged children’s operas, musical comedy, art songs, and folk songs from around the world.

The Choir frequently collaborates with prestigious organisations such as the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, Opera Australia, and Victorian Opera, performing major works including Orff’s Carmina Burana, Mahler’s Third and Eighth Symphonies, and Britten’s War Requiem. Their busy schedule includes regular television appearances, recordings, and major events like the Sydney Olympic Games, Melbourne Commonwealth Games, and Carols by Candlelight at the Myer Music Bowl since 1988.

Under the baton of internationally recognised conductors such as Graham Abbott and Christopher Bell, the Choir has delivered memorable performances worldwide, from St. Peter’s in Rome to Disneyland in three countries. The Choir’s own concert series has featured major works like Vivaldi’s Gloria and Haydn’s Nelson Mass, showcasing their versatility and excellence.

Now, as the National Boys Choir of Australia continues to build on its legacy, we invite former choristers to join the Alumni Association. By signing up, alumni can reconnect with old friends, stay informed about Choir activities, and continue to support and celebrate the Choir’s ongoing success. Join us in preserving and promoting the rich musical heritage of one of Melbourne’s most esteemed cultural institutions.
