Lose yourself in the mesmerising Sounds of the World gala concert, as the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall plays host in July to the greatest variety of children’s choirs ever heard under one roof.

The one-time-only concert is part of the Gondwana World Choral Festival, which is set to be the greatest gathering of international choirs in Australia this century. More than one thousand young singers from some of the world’s finest choirs will converge on Sydney from 15-21 July to sing together in celebration of the 30-year anniversary of Gondwana Choirs.

Extraordinary young singers from Canada, China (including Inner Mongolia), Estonia, France, Japan, Latvia, the USA, and around Australia will perform the most exciting choral music ever heard in Australia.

The transcendent event features Sydney Children’s Choir performing alongside an extraordinary lineup of international guest choirs, including Boston Children’s Chorus, USA; Estonian Television Girls’ Choir, Estonia; La Cigale de Lyon, France; Guangdong Experimental Middle School Choir, China; Inner Mongolia Youth Choir, China; Miami Children’s Choir, USA, Nagoya Children’s Choir, Japan; Riga Cathedral Girls’ Choir TIARA, Latvia; and Toronto Children’s Chorus, Canada. Host choirs include Sydney Children’s Choir; Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir, and their big sisters, Marliya (Cairns); and Gondwana Latitude 34. Other performing Australian choirs include Young Adelaide Voices (SA), plus choirs from Sydney schools Abbotsleigh, SCEGGS Darlinghurst, and PLC Pymble.

Each choir will perform their signature repertoire, including music from their homeland, before combining to sing Christopher Gordon’s Peace on Earth.

The festival program also features a series of recitals, workshops, masterclasses and panel discussions at the festival hub at Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
