Established in 1984, QYC provides children and young adults – from Prep. to age 25 – with unique, high quality choral training and performance opportunities. The program of weekly rehearsals and an annual camp incorporates aspects of singing, choreography and stagecraft. The various ensembles that constitute the Queensland Youth Choir perform a wide variety of repertoire including contemporary, classical, popular, folk, rock, gospel, jazz, art music, musical theatre and Australiana. Most performances incorporate a number of pieces which are specially choreographed to add an additional visual dimension to the overall effect.
QYC also runs early childhood music classes – Bambino Music – for young children up to five years of age.
Members take pride in belonging to an organisation that is highly respected both nationally and internationally, and that performs in its own concert series, on tours, and at special events including weddings, sporting fixtures, conventions and community events.
QYC has its office and rehearsal space at the Old Museum Building in the inner Brisbane suburb of Bowen Hills.
