Wollongong Messiah Choir 2022

A brand-new choir was launched in Wollongong in 2022 and singers had the opportunity to perform in the Sydney Opera House in December 2022. The Wollongong Messiah Choir was initiated as a result of a new 3-way partnership between: WollCon, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs (SPC) and the University of Wollongong.

Every two years, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs stage performances of Handel’s ‘Messiah’ and invite singers to join with the SPC Symphony Chorus in celebratory performances of this iconic work, with professional soloists and orchestra.

2022 was particularly special because it was the first performance involving singers from communities in and around Sydney since the Opera House Concert Hall’s refurbishment.

Singers from Wollongong and surrounds were invited to come together at UOW for regular ‘Messiah’ rehearsals from late July to early December 2022.

The project also involved Baritone singer Mr Hayden Barrington as the musical director and conductor.

Due to the success of this special project WollCon has now initiated a new Chamber Choir and is welcoming advanced singers. READ MORE
