West Gippsland Chorale Inc is an auditioned community choir based in Warragul. Founded in 1985, the West Gippsland Chorale consists of some of the district’s most talented singers, and has established a strong reputation within Gippsland’s choral community for their exciting and diverse performances. Its wide repertoire includes classical choral music of all periods (sacred and secular), madrigals, folk songs from a range of cultures, contemporary compositions (including by Australian composers), and jazz and pop standards. It includes both larger works and programs of short pieces. There are usually three concerts each year: Autumn, Spring, and Christmas, with two performances of each program over one weekend.

Sharing Joyful Music Again for Christmas…

17 and 19 Dec 2021

Like many Choirs, West Gippsland Chorale has been affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and current public health directions and restrictions. 

Like everyone else, our members and Musical Directors have experienced times of uncertainty regarding travel and the need for intermittent quarantine periods, and responses to current case numbers.  Members are currently working with Musical Director Emeritus, Jan Mclean, to learn some Christmas material, including Vivaldi’s Gloria and other joyous and hopeful music for the festive season.

The choir is very much looking forward to performing a Christmas Concert in 2021, on the Friday evening (8.00pm) and the Sunday afternoon (2.00pm) of the 17th and 19th of December; at Wesley of Warragul.  Regular audience members and music lovers new to the area will be warmly welcomed. Audience members will need to provide evidence of their vaccination status, as per current State Government directives.   

Tickets are available from Try Booking at the following link, from Need To Read in Warragul or at the door.
