The Jubilate Singers has been a pillar of community choral music in Sydney for over 20 years. Jubilate sings a variety of music, particularly major classical choral works such as Handel’s Messiah and Mozart’s Requiem, as well as rhythmic African songs and Jazz standards.
With no formal auditions and funded by member contributions, this choir is open to anyone with a love of music. The choir has performed at major events, including Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas at St Andrew’s Cathedral during the Sydney Olympics in 2000 and the Belvoir Theatre’s production of The Events in 2016. In 2017, the choir brought together its passion for music and social justice, hosting ‘By Our Choirs Combined’, a collaborative concert featuring five choirs from across Sydney to raise money for refugees and asylum seekers.
In 2018, Jubilate studied traditional songs and body percussion from Aceh, Indonesia in partnership with Suara Indonesia Dance Group and performed amongst a line up of international acts at the ASYIK Arts and Cultural Bazaar. Jubilate toured to Tasmania in August of that year to combine forces with St Matthews Singers in New Norfolk and welcomed a follow up concert in Sydney in November. Ending the year with a bang, the group performed live for ABC Radio’s Sing Out Sydney.
In 2019, Jubilate has been thrilled to partner with Symphonia Jubilate, a like-minded community music organisation, and perform a set of musical theatre classics to a packed audience including patrons Dame Marie Bashir and Lyn Williams AM at a musical showcase.
