Out & Loud 2019

Community Event

24 Oct 2019 to 28 Oct 2019

Out & Loud Choral Festival brings together LGBTIQ+ choirs from all over Australia and New Zealand. It is the only festival of its type in Australasia: choirs from across the continent will make fabulous music, celebrating our voices and our diversity.

Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire is excited to host the festival and is gearing up for a spectacular celebration of choral music and queer culture.

Canberra local Stephen Leek—one of Australia’s foremost choral musicians—will conduct a massed choral performance featuring over 300 voices. A highlight of their performance will be a piece commissioned for this festival from ARIA Award-winning composer Sally Whitwell. Complementing the high calibre of musical expertise of Leek and Whitwell will be choral experts from Canberra and beyond who will lead a series of exciting workshops for Out & Loud delegates.

Choirs from Auckland, Brisbane, Darwin, Dili, Melbourne, Perth, Suva and Sydney will join the Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire for performances in some of Canberra’s cultural institutions such as the National Gallery of Australia, National Portrait Gallery and Old Parliament House, all free to the Canberra public.

The festival will culminate with a Gala Concert at Llewellyn Hall on 27 October.
