APPLICATIONS ARE NOW OPEN FOR CHORAL SCHOLARSHIPS

The Choir of Geelong Grammar School is an auditioned choir of about 60 Senior School students (including up to 24 Choral Scholars), as well as staff. The Choir sings regularly for Sunday Chapel and other Chapel Services, as well as for concerts. The music sung includes religious and non-religious music and covers many musical styles, from all periods of classical music to gospel, jazz and folk.

Apart from learning many pieces of music, choristers also learn how to use their voices; each rehearsal is a group-singing lesson.

Being in the Choir is great fun, as well as being immensely rewarding. The standard is high and choristers find that they make great individual progress.
