The TSO Chorus is an auditioned group of over 80 voices that was founded in 1992 to present concert performances of opera. Since then, the repertoire has broadened to embrace masses, requiems and symphonies for chorus and orchestra, as well as a diverse array of sacred and secular a cappella works. The TSO Chorus recently returned to its opera roots with the Helpmann Award-winning performance of Wagner’s Tristan and Isolde (2016), Bizet’s Carmen (2017) and, this year, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette. In addition to concerts with the TSO, highlights in recent years include performances with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, West Australian Symphony Orchestra, Adelaide Symphony Orchestra, Orchestra Victoria and the Hong Kong Philharmonic Orchestra. With a reputation for innovative performances under the direction of Chorusmaster June Tyzack, the TSO Chorus commenced the year with two performances in Mofo, maintaining its distinctive presence at Mona (previous performances include Mofo, Dark Mofo and Synaesthesia). Concerts with the TSO in 2018 will be Peer Gynt, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Fauré’s Requiem, Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette and Messiah. The year will be capped off with a tour to Campbell Town and Cygnet.
