The Star Chorale is a Melbourne-based community choir dedicated to continuing and enhancing a tradition of excellence in the performance of choral music.
The choir has a long and close association with Methodist Ladies’ College in Kew, Victoria, and many of its members are former students, staff members, family of students or friends of MLC. But such an association is definitely not a requirement for membership of the choir.
Rehearsals are held in excellent facilities at Methodist Ladies’ College. Off street parking is available.
Our next performance will be at our Christmas Concert, featuring John Rutter’s Magnificat, as well as traditional carols, at the Auburn Uniting Church, Hawthorn at 2:30pm on Sunday 3 December 2017.
Music Director, Dr Kathleen McGuire
Organist, Janette Patton
Pianist, Sue Goessling
Percussionist, Declan Acton
Entry by donation.
All proceeds from donations collected at the concert will go to the Cure Brain Cancer Foundation. The Foundation is the peak organisation for brain cancer research, advocacy and awareness in Australia, with a mission to increase five-year survival from the current 20% to 50% by 2023.
The Star Chorale has nominated the Foundation as its target charity this year. The Foundation is the preferred charity of Ben Leske, who conducted the choir for our “Songs of Australia” concert earlier this year, and who has been fighting brain cancer himself.
