The Sydney Male Choir are on tour of New Zealand. Join Australia's Great Male Choir for One Concert Only at Old St John's Church on March 29th with special guests The Nelson Male Voice Choir.

The Sydney Male Choir is a not for profit organization. “Bringing joy through song” is our major objective: joy to our audiences as well as joy to ourselves as singers. The choir started as the “Petersham Glee Club” in the Sydney suburb of Petersham in 1913 and has continued without a break to the present day. In that time we have sung all types of music from the classics and opera to Welsh hymns, from the musicals and pop to modern Australian compositions. It may well be this variety that appeals so much to audiences and choristers alike.
