Company in residency - The Esk Community Choir

Meet the Esk Community Choir

Since its genesis with 6 ladies in 1978, the Esk Community Choir has been continuously welcoming members. Founded by its present Musical Director, Alexis FitzGeraLd OAM, so engaging is participation in this Choir that many of its members join with ‘the locals’, travelling to weekly practices from as far afield as Brisbane, Lowood, Laidley, Gatton, Coominya, and Toowoomba. Now in its forty-sixth year of living its motto “Service in Song”, the Choir presently has an SATB ‘Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass’ membership numbering over 40.

Alexis and her choristers are quietly proud of their 45 years of achievements which have included many local concerts and charity performances, including staging their first full Musical Production, Oklahoma in 1 993. Other performances include Theatre
Restaurants and collaborations with other Choirs, Orchestras and Ensembles, on two occasions, with International Choirs and Conductors at the Sydney Opera House. 

Since 2008, the Choir has completed six European tours, the last, in 2019 to Italy. The Choir rehearsals are held from 5.30pm to approx.8.30pm every Tuesday night at the Somerset Civic Centre, 35 Esk Hampton Road, Esk.
