The University of Queensland Chamber Singers are a specialist ensemble that draws young vocal artists from across the university to perform diverse repertoire. 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 focuses on traditional and contemporary choral repertoire 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 (South Bank) as part of the Queensland Festival of Music, and at the University of Queensland’s Art Museum, Nickson Room, Customs House and performs regularly at St John’s Cathedral. Regional tours (such as to Cairns, Innisfail, and Toowoomba) 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 the 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 Masswith 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 The University of Queensland’s Pulse Chamber Orchestra, directed by Patrick Murphy. The choir has been broadcast on ABC Classic FM and 4MBS Classic FM.

The Museum in several acts: Unlearning program

Friday 26 July through Saturday 14 December 2019

Semester 2, 2019 will launch a new programming direction for the UQ Art Museum. The inaugural tether is UNLEARNING. As an institution we are approaching these tethers openly, with our artists and community of academics and students, responding in varied ways according to their practice and research. We believe learning is an exchange, and through transparent programming, open relationships with artists and students, we hope our audiences will be able to engage on multiple levels in the museum.
