About Gondwana Choirs
Gondwana Choirs is the leader in Australian choral performance, shaping the Australian sound through the creation and presentation of innovative new work, and providing opportunities to all talented young Australians through world-class training by leading artists.
Gondwana Choirs comprises the most accomplished choral groups of young people in Australia. Founded by Artistic Director Lyn Williams OAM as Sydney Children’s Choir in 1989, the organisation has grown to include Gondwana National Choirs and Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choirs. The organisation has commissioned over 150 works by leading Australian composers and performs a significant number of Australian compositions each year nationally and internationally.
Singers from all three arms of the organisation, Sydney Children’s Choir, Gondwana National Choirs and Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir, have joined together on several occasions, most notably in 2014 with Sydney Symphony Orchestra for the world premiere performances of Jandamarra: Sing for the Country by Paul Stanhope.
Gondwana Choirs is the proud holder of the APRA/AMCOS award for Excellence by an Organisation for its 2014 Artistic Program and significant contribution to Australian music since 1989.
