Press Quotes

“it certainly confirms claims that Melbourne's Choir of Ormond College is on of the best in this country and a serious candidate for international recognition. Bach, Byrd, Poulenc and Britten would no doubt agree. Superb.”

— Lesly Sly, Panorama

“The singing is excellent ... as we have come to expect.”

ABC 24 Hours

“youthful vigor ... freshness of tone and a determination to overcome the technical difficulties an adventurous repertory presents.”

— Tony Way, The Age - Green Guide

“Something, I would think, to please everyone”

— Henry Howell, Australian Music Teacher Magazine
