Douglas Lawrence and the Australian Chamber Choir launched the 'no sauce' movement last year, presenting the best choral music without fuss or distraction, much as in Italy the best fillet steak is served without sauce. 
In 2019 we continue to present programs that stimulate the imagination. We don’t bring in dancers, circus or multimedia. We focus on pure voices, perfectly blended, sounding as one instrument. We sing vibrant and engaging programs that excite and delight, allowing you simply to savour the sound.

We are proud to announce an expanded 4-concert subscription season for 2019. Elizabeth Anderson – General Manager Pictured: Alto, Isobel Todd and Tenor, Anish Nair
