Welcome to The Llewellyn Choir
Welcome to the website of The Llewellyn Choir, one of Canberra’s leading and longest-running choral groups. Our repertoire is based on the classical choral repertoire with orchestral accompaniment; it also includes lightly accompanied smaller pieces drawn from a wide range of sources.
We have ties with the ANU School of Music and Canberra Youth Music, and provide performance opportunities for their graduates and other young professional musicians. We also have links with Les Alizés Chorale in New Caledonia and exchange visits every two years.
We perform 3-4 times a year, and rehearse on Tuesday nights at the ANU School of Music, from 7.30 to 9.30pm.
We are always looking for new members. Find out how to join.
Thanks to The Tallis Scholars
We're grateful to The Tallis Scholars for their donation of two tickets to their concert on 4 November, worth $170, to raffle as part of our fund-raising to present Verdi's Requiem in May 2017.

Lauridsen's Lux Aeterna was a delight to sing and he is now officially one of the choir's favourite composers.
A big thank you to the Gabriel Singers from Canberra Girls Grammar School for the opportunity to perform with them. Their performance of Dan Walker's Non Nobis Domine was very moving, and they contributed greatly to the success of the Lauridsen piece.
For our Christmas concert on Saturday 17 December we are presenting Josef Rheinberger's The Star of Bethlehem at Wesley Uniting Church. More details are available on the Next Concerts page.
Praise for Ikon of Light
"[Ikon of Light] presents quite a challenge for singers with very high notes for sopranos and very low notes for basses to be sustained. The choir sang it very well indeed, creating a haunting and ethereal sound that was at times quite startling ... The choir showed with
the Tavener piece that they can handle even technically difficult works with
