About Adelaide Male Voice Choir

The Choir members come from several countries and many different professions. A love of music is the strong bond between them, and they unite with great enthusiasm in living up to the Choir’s motto: Achieving Choral Excellence.

 The Patron of the Adelaide Male Voice Choir is the Governor of South Australia: His Excellency Hieu Van Lee AO The Adelaide Male Voice Choir is an all–male choir with a singing strength of about 40 members, dedicated to living up to its motto – “Celebrating Choral Excellence”. The Choir has a proud tradition of good singing and good fellowship, and members enjoy these two aspects of the Choir’s life throughout the year. The Choir rehearses regularly on Monday nights at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 139 Archer St, North Adelaide, beginning at 7.45 pm and finishing at 9.45 pm. Intending new members are asked to contact george@amvc.org.au 0407 724 584 to make arrangements about attending a rehearsal. The Choir is always interested in enrolling enthusiastic new members. The Choir performs three major concerts a year (May, October and November), as well as about twelve smaller concerts and several social events. These engagements are undertaken with a variety of guest artists, ranging from school students to leading bands of Adelaide. A matter of pride in the Choir is the range of repertoire performed - from grand opera to modern popular music - there is something for all tastes...

The Choir has maintained a fine tradition of fellowship and good singing throughout its history and has always sought to provide musical delight to its audiences. It has performed in various venues in Adelaide and the metropolitan area and has undertaken several trips to country SA and interstate. In 2008 the Choir was an honoured guest at the inaugural Pemulwuy Festival of Male Choirs in Brisbane. Several challenging pieces of music were specially commissioned for the Festival and were performed by the assembled choirs with spectacular success. While in Queensland, the Choir extended its tour to perform with the Buderim Male Choir on the Sunshine Coast. The friendly links formed on that occasion resulted in a reciprocal visit from the Buderim Male Choir to Adelaide in 2009, with the two Choirs presenting joint concerts in Adelaide and Tanunda. The Choir performs a wide range of repertoire, including opera and operetta, songs from musicals, religious music, folk songs, Negro spirituals and arrangements of modern popular pieces. It regularly invites talented young Adelaide soloists to perform with it at its concerts, enabling them to perform a range of operatic and other works.
