“Contemporary and Classic Choral works that celebrate the Christmas tradition and season”
During the season leading up to Christmas CHIME (Choral Institute Melbourne) is in hot demand for many carols events and performances, so we are very privileged to have the choir returning to Rosanna to share with us their wide selection of Christmas carols and songs.
Since inception in 1984 CHIME has assisted hundreds of people to appreciate and to contribute to quality choral performances. Initially targeting young adults, the organisation now encompasses a large number of choristers aged between 15 and 80.
As well as performing in Melbourne and regional Victoria, the choir has toured in other Australian states; international tours have included Japan, Switzerland, Canada, Austria, Germany, Italy and the UK.
Among its several aims, CHIME has been particularly successful in assisting choristers to develop their
talents and fostering a love of music and singing; and a number of former choristers have gone on to become well-known performers in the world of music.
CHIME has a busy year ahead in 2018 including a performance in New York at the renowned Carnegie Hall, a concert at the Melbourne Recital Centre with Aled Jones, several partner concerts and its usual string of corporate and community events.
Principal Artistic Director, Marten Visser, writes, “We are thrilled to finish off the 2018 year with the very special Arden Crescent Community as we celebrate the Christmas season through music.”
