Choral Society
Link / Contact: hcs.asn.au/contact
The Heidelberg Choral Society (HCS) was formed in 1920. Peter Bandy is the Artistic Director and Conductor. Peter was appointed in September 2010 replacing Matthew Toogood who has taken up a position in Germany. Peter was a guest conductor in 2010 for our performance of Mendelssohn's Saint Paul oratorio. Peter will take up his appointment in February 2011. Tim Phillips is guest conductor for the December concert featuring Gounod's St Cecilia Mass. HCS performs classical sacred and secular choral works, as well as part songs, oratorios, operas and madrigals. Depending on music and available resources the choir sings both accompanied (piano, organ, orchestra) and unaccompanied. The choir is available for hire. If you would like to arrange a performance contact the Secretary - click here. We regularly perform three major concerts each year, usually scheduled for May, August and December. Professional soloists accompany the choir for most concerts. In November 2008, HCS in conjunction with the Amadeus Chamber Orchestra, under the direction of Matthew Toogood, undertook an inaugural interstate tour to perform Handel?s Messiah in regional Victoria and South Australia. By (very) popular demand, the choir repeated this tour in 2009. In addition, HCS is available year round for one hour performances of a capella European sacred music. These performances serve as a mutual fundraising venture for HCS and charities and churches throughout Victoria. For enquiries click here. The choir consists of soprano, alto, tenor and bass and currently has approximately 90 members.
