We are a non-profit and non-denominational organisation fostering the love of music in our community.

The Choral Institute is constantly evaluating new ways to bring a love of music to people all over the world. Our choirs are our vehicle for achieving this.


CHIME CHOIR - Our Foundation Choir


This is our senior SATB choir of about 40 choristers. Commencing on the first Tuesday in February, this group rehearses weekly throughout the year. Performances include major mid-year and Christmas concerts supplemented with occassional Eisteddfod and festival participation. Weddings and community performances occur on a an ed-hoc basis.

Men and women who blend with our youthfull sound are most welcome.

CHIME TOURING CHOIR - Regional & International


This choir is formed on a needs basis, drawing heavily from existing members. Participation by regional and city-based choristers is strongly encouraged.

The choir is currently reforming for a tour of the UK , currently planned for July 2012. 



This choir is reformed in September annually in anticipation of the usual high choir demands of the Christmas period.

In recent years this choir has had about 100 members, performs at the Institute's Christmas Concert , and performs daily at the Crown Entertainment Complex for up to 5 weeks prior to Christmas.

Young Adults Choir - In formation

Young adults between the age of 15 and 29 yrs are invited to audition for this choir.
The repertoire is more appropriate to this age group than some of the more traditional or large SATB arrangements performed by the other CHIME choirs. That being said, the programs are challenging and fun. The social atmosphere is also excellent.

CHIME Special Events Choir

The Special Events Choir is formed on a needs basis in response to client demand.
The choir is an auditioned choir with high standards required in performance and personal grooming. Recent performances have included the national sales launch for the new Mazda 6, the Richmond Football Club Centenary celebration gala ball and MCG pre-match entertainment, and the Andrea Bocelli concert at Rod Laver Arena.
