It starts with an audition…
Auditions are informal (taking only a few minutes) and take place in the Choir’s large studio in small groups.
Boys commence with the choir at seven or eight years of age, and entry is by audition only. In addition to providing a supportive and welcoming environment for boys to further their love for singing and music, the National Boys Choir of Australia offers unique performance opportunities via its own concerts and tour, along with regular performances with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Opera Australia, and also on television and radio. An annual highlight is Vision Australia’s Carols by Candlelight at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl.
We ask interested families who would like more information, or to book an audition, to please complete and submit the form below.
“The Choristers are taught so much more than just singing. The National Boys Choir of Australia support and nurture the whole person. Promoting respect and building confidence and self-esteem. The boys graduate as well-rounded young men.”
– Juliette Browne, parent
“The National Boys Choir is a wonderful institution for young boys to not only learn and really appreciate singing and music, but also to gain some fantastic life lessons, like independence, being responsible, having a sense of self and community, and really establishing life-long friendships.”
-Aparna Gray, parent
