About the UQ Chamber Singers

The UQ Chamber Singers draws young vocal artists from across the university to perform a diverse range of repertoire in a specialist vocal ensemble. Under the direction of Graeme Morton, Choral Fellow at the School of Music and Director of Music at St John's Anglican Cathedral, Brisbane, the ensemble has a traditional choral repertoire and also a focus on contemporary choral music including that of Australian composers. The UQ Chamber Singers regularly collaborate with other musicians and contribute to research projects within the university.

The ensemble has performed in the Red Box (Southbank) as part of the Queensland Festival of Music, and at The University of Queensland’s Art Museum, Nickson Room and Customs House, as well as regular performances at St John’s Cathedral. Regional tours (such as to Cairns and Innisfail) support the university’s engagement with local communities, and the group’s research involvement extends from the canonic material from the early Renaissance to commissions and recent compositions. Recent premieres include Finest Hour, a speech melody work commissioned from UQ School of Music Senior Lecturer in Composition, Dr Robert Davidson.

In 2017 the ensemble performed an unusual double bill, performing Bach’s monumental B Minor Mass with the Brisbane Chamber Choir and the Queensland Symphony Orchestra directed by Stephen Layton. One week later they performed the St Matthew Passion together with other vocal students from the School of Music and UQ’s Pulse Chamber Orchestra, directed by Patrick Murphy. The choir has been broadcast on ABC Classic FM and 4MBS Classic FM.
