Tours

The Australian Girls Choir has toured on thirty-six occasions since 1989 to destinations all over Australia and to every corner of the globe. Over one hundred choristers took part in the AGC’s National and International Tours in 2015; broadening their musical and cultural horizons and forging life-long friendships.

We are immensely proud of the reputation that our touring choristers have achieved, and after all these years of meeting and performing with choirs from around the globe we are sure that our approach to touring is unique. Host groups are amazed that we bring girls together from across five cities, who after three days of rehearsal together, can present a show that is of a professional standard. Beyond this, people we encounter cannot believe how much we fit in to each day as a “family” of 62 nor can they imagine how we maintain the discipline, energy and endless positivity. Experience goes a long way but we couldn’t do what we do without taking a carefully selected group of talented and committed girls. Parents reliably tell us that their daughters return from tour changed for the better and remark about improved self management, increased confidence and a better understanding of the world outside their own 

TOURING WITH THE AGC IN 2016
We had wonderful response to our invitation to tour this year and were delighted by the quality of the auditionees. 56 choristers will participate in our 19th International Tour in July to New Zealand visiting Auckland, Hamilton, and Wellington over a two week period. In September and October another 56 choristers will travel to Europe including London, Villers-Bretonneux , Paris, Marostica, Venice and Rome for three weeks. The girls will be holding workshops and performances with host choirs and schools and sightseeing along the way. We will keep you updated with information about our travel adventures in future newsletters.
