BRANDENBURG CHOIR

The Brandenburg Choir is renowned for its astonishing vocal blend and technical virtuosity. Established by Artistic Director Paul Dyer in 1999 to perform in the first-ever Noël! Noël! Brandenburg Christmas concert, the Choir has become a regular part of the Brandenburg year.

The first Noël! Noël! concert combined medieval chant and polyphony as well as carols from around the world in their original settings and languages. “Music from earlier centuries often requires the sound of the human voice. I wanted to put a group of excellent singers together adding a rich complement to our period instruments. Our Choir is a ravishing blend of radiant Sydney singers”, says Paul Dyer.

Originally 13 voices, the Choir joined our Orchestra and wowed audiences with truly beautiful renditions of both familiar Christmas favourites and rarely-heard sacred works, performing music from the eleventh century to the Baroque. It was an instant success, combining musical, literary and scholarly performances that thrilled audiences and critics alike.
