In June, singers from our choir will tour Ireland and the UK to perform in Europe’s largest GLBTI choral festival, Various Voices.
‘We are excited to be one of two Australian choirs, along with Canberra, that will be performing at this year’s Various Voices festival in Dublin,’ said David Hardy, Choir President. ‘Gloria, Dublin’s Lesbian and Gay Choir is hosting this event and expecting more than 2,000 singers, principally from GLBTI choirs across Europe.’
Our choir will perform twice during the Dublin festival, on Friday, 13 June at the Mahoney Hall, Dublin City University and on the next day, along with the Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire at Dublin City Hall. Before Dublin, our Choir will visit Leeds in West Yorkshire where we will be hosted by and sing with local GLBTI chorus, Gay Abandon.
‘We have created a show featuring a range of Australian music to perform in Dublin and Leeds,’ said Hardy. ‘This is part of our bigger concert in Brisbane which will be held on 17 May, the International Day against homophobia, biphobia and transphobia.’
Tickets are still available for the 17 May show at the Queensland Multicultural Centre. Titled ‘My Country? An evening of Australian and Irish music’, it will feature our choir as well as local band, Eurotone Crisis and singer/songwriter, Mary Jane Carpenter.
The ‘My Country?’ concert is on Saturday, 17 May 2014 at the Queensland Multicultural Centre, 102 Main Street, Kangaroo Point. Tickets are priced at $30 (adult) and $20 (conc.) and are on sale here.
The concert will support Australian Marriage Equality.
The Brisbane Lesbian and Gay Pride Choir is a non-auditioned choir, open to gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered, intersex, queer and straight people who love to sing.
The Choir rehearses every Tuesday evening at the New Farm Library meeting room, 135 Sydney Street, New Farm. The next (Semester 2) intake for new singers begins on Tuesday, 8 July.
