A WESTERN AUSTRALIA CHOIR OF SKILLED AMATEURS
SEEKING EXCELLENCE

The Perth Symphonic Chorus (PSC), established in 1997, has been led since its inception by internationally-acclaimed conductor, Dr Margaret Pride. At the end of 2021, after 25 years of leadership which includes conducting over one hundred and twenty concerts, Margaret stepped down from her position as Music Director.

The Chorus comprises 50-70 disciplined, enthusiastic and passionate individuals who are skilled in performing the works of some of the best choral composers throughout the ages.

The Chorus members are auditioned, amateur singers. Attached to PSC is the Perth Chamber Choir, a small group of more highly skilled choristers, who are drawn from the Chorus to present more complex works at PSC concerts.

There are typically five concerts per year – one in each of June and October, two carol concerts in churches and Handel’s Messiah in the Perth Concert Hall in December.

Rehearsals: Thursday evening from 7:30-10:00pm at All Saints Floreat Uniting Church.

SING WITH US

Our choral year begins in February however please feel free to contact us regarding joining the choir at any time.

If you decide you would like to join us, we will give you the music for an audition piece and a few weeks to learn it.  The audition itself is a private, non-threatening affair. You sing the piece that you have been working on for the past few weeks. Margaret might ask you to sing a scale or two, perhaps clap some simple rhythms and that’s about it! You don’t have to sight sing, but it helps if you understand the music on the page.

We practise each Thursday evening from 7:30pm to 10:00pm at All Saints Floreat Uniting Church,  48-50 Berkeley Cres, Floreat, WA. There is ample street parking around the site.
