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.

JESSA is a Hobart based SSA vocal ensemble founded in 2022 by singer and educator Jane Edwards and accompanied by Sarah Chick.

Since inception, JESSA has become a significant force in Tasmanian choral music, performing a minimum of five concerts annually, including their own subscription series, and appearances at Festival of Voices. Modern repertoire is very much their focus, with presentation of leading contemporary English, American, Scandinavian and Baltic State composers. Importantly, JESSA champions Australian composers, and has a commitment to Tasmanian works, having already presented numerous SSA compositions by expat Ben Van Tienen.

JESSA is currently involved in discussions with leading composers including Sally Whitwell, Joseph Twist, Andrew Ford and Angus Davison, and look forward to presenting their works in future concerts.
