Concordis Chamber Choir

Concordis is dedicated to the pursuit of excellence in choral singing, with an emphasis on the high quality performance of an accessible and enjoyable range of choral music. Throughout its early journey Concordis enjoyed the guidance of its Founding Director Andrew Hunter and former Assistant Artistic Director/composer-in-residence Nicholas Buc.

Concordis is currently led by Music Director Philippa Jones. Philippa’s passion for choral music blended with a wealth of practised musical knowledge have allowed the choir to flourish in new and exciting ways. Philippa's exciting concert programs have been well-received and have successfully seen the choir sell-out performances, recording sessions and online workshops.

Concordis has had several exciting collaborations with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Together, Concordis and the MSO have performed Carmina Burana, the Doctor Who Spectacular, Pirates of the Caribbean and Symphony of Legends. To celebrate the 2019 Christmas season Concordis joined the MSO to perform the brilliant John Williams score of Home Alone.

More recently, the choir performed and filmed a curated program of music at the Mission to Seafarers Dome in the Docklands. Other highlights include performances at the Old Melbourne Gaol, Abbotsford Convent, and St Pauls Chapter House; as well as MONA, Government House Tasmania, and the Port Arthur Historic Site as part of Festival of Voices 2022.

Concordis is thrilled to be returning to the Festival of Voices 2024, bringing their diverse repertoire of choral music and signature sound to Tasmanian audiences.

Tasman Peninsula Singers

Tasman Peninsula Singers began nearly eighty years ago as a group of local singers standing around a piano in a farmhouse on the outskirts of Nubeena.

Today, it is remarkable that an active choir of approximately twenty people continues to thrive in what is one of Tasmania’s smallest municipalities. This is largely due to the nurturing and enthusiasm of Ali Hart, their choir leader. Ali has been teaching music at the local school for many years, and music is in her blood.

Tasman Peninsula Singers practice each week at the local CWA Hall, and the group is regularly asked to perform at local events. The choir tackles an eclectic range of music, from classical to pop, and from folk to traditional.

One of the choir’s signature pieces is a song entitled “Munya”, which means “echidna” in the local dialect of the Paredarerme people. The words were written by one of the choir members, a local indigenous woman, and the music was composed and arranged by Ali Hart.
