The Choir of Geelong Grammar School is an auditioned choir of approximately 30-50 Senior School students and includes staff. The Choir sings regularly for Sunday Chapel and other Chapel Services, and concerts. The music performed includes religious and non-religious music and covers many musical styles, from all periods of classical music to gospel, jazz and folk.

In addition to learning many pieces of music, choristers also learn how to use their voices; each rehearsal is a group-singing lesson. Not only great fun, being in the Choir is immensely rewarding. The standard is high and choristers find that they make great individual progress.

Music scholarships are awarded to students with previous choral or vocal experience and have a love of singing.
