It happened – like day follows night – we farewelled another 31 outstanding choristers in December last year. We have no control over the biological changes that move soprano to tenor, so we celebrate the few short years we have together before the boys join us again with the Men’s choir. Each year the retiring choristers are formally acknowledged on the stage at the Christmas concert. On a separate occasion staff and boys meet for an informal dinner – an opportunity for a little light-hearted frivolity away from the disciplines of the Choir.
Last year’s list of retiring choristers includes Nicholas Bredhauer, Jonathan Brisbane, Tim Caldwell, Derek Cheung, Edmund Chow, Luke Connell, Bob Davis, Daniel Deakin, Ethan Flora, Zach Foster-Zuluaga, Tomas Kalejs, Bill Keating, Tiger Lin, Nicholas Lloyd, Timothy McGrath, Blakely McLean Davies, Stewart McMillan, Liam Orman, Anathan Pham, Ed Phillips, Julian Pirotta, Corey Robinson, Ariya Saffar, Sujanthan Satkunarajah, James Smith, Henry Toussaint, Astyn Trecate, Nicholas Van Kerkhoven, Leo Wang, Trent Winter and Brendan Yeo.
