Bio

The mission of The Australian Voices is to commission, perform, record and promote the music of Australian composers to the highest international artistic standards.

Since 1993, The Australian Voices have championed an astonishing flourish of new Australian vocal music, having commissioned hundreds of new works. Much of this new music captures vividly the vibrant sound, colour, and energy of the Australian continent and its people. The singers, aged between 17 and 28 come from different Australian cities and commit to a rigorous professional schedule of concerts and workshops, both in Australia and throughout the world. This vocal ensemble has been recognised by many international awards and honours as one of the finest of its type in the world.

The Australian Voices have toured internationally many times, participating in major events in the U.K, the U.S.A., Bosnia, Canada, Guatemala, France, Germany, Austria, Belgium, Spain, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Poland, Croatia, New Zealand, Malaysia, China, Taiwan, Singapore and Korea. The Australian Voices have shared stages with some of the great musicians of the world including Jose Carreras, Bobby McFerrin and Evelyn Glennie.

Under the direction of Graeme Morton (conductor 1993-1996, Stephen Leek (conductor 1996-2009), and now Gordon Hamilton (2009-), The Australian Voices have achieved outstanding levels of national and international success, including the following distinctions
