Event Details

Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir are excited to announce our next major concert in March showcasing repertoire we will be presenting in the Proud Voices Asia 'Hand in Hand' Choral Festival in Tokyo in April. There we'll be celebrating with 16 Asian LGBTQI choirs and we've chosen music to inspire, motivate and bring our cultures together.

Featuring pride anthems like 'This Is Me', 'Proud' and the eponymous song 'Rise Up', contemporary Australian works including part of our own commissioned work by composer John Peterson, Dreams and Visions, together with popular Japanese choral works.

In 'Rise Up' and on our Japanese tour, we'll be demonstrating solidarity with our LGBTQI friends in Japan while promoting our unique Australian culture and supporting their push for marriage equality and greater acceptance. Joining us will be the amazing TaikOz and Sydney Sakura Choir.

Featured non-Australian music: The Lavender Song, This Is Me, Rise Up, Proud
