With its blazing trumpets, thundering tympani, and thrilling Hallelujah Chorus, Handel's great choral masterpiece offers a magnificent combination of theatrical effect and spiritual reflection.

The Queensland Choir's 150 voice chorus will be accompanied by guest soloists Leanne Kenneally-Warnock (soprano), Hayley Sugars (mezzo-soprano), Sebastian Maclaine (tenor) and Leon Warnock (baritone), joined by the fabulous Sinfonia of St Andrew's orchestra, and conducted by Kevin Power OAM.

The Queensland Choir has been performing since 1872 and is now regarded as one of the premier large choirs in Australia. The choir is made up of 150 volunteer choristers from a wide range of backgrounds. The choir has performed regularly with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, the Sinfonia of St Andrew's orchestra, other orchestras and instrumental groups, and also collaborates with other choirs in and around Brisbane.
