Australian Men’s Choir Festival

 

This event will be taking place over the weekend, 11th -13th of October 2024 at the Adelaide Latvian Hall ‘Talava’. It’s primary focus is to unite, rejuvenate and foster all Men’s Choirs, Latvian and non-latvian around Australia. We aim to include Baltic and Australian choirs in this but the primary language to be sung in will be Latvian and members of the public who may be interested in getting involved in a men’s choir. The tradition of the Men’s Choir on the decline so together we must aim high to bring it back to its full glory, it is important not only for the above reason but also aiding mental health for those in need, not too dissimilar to a ‘Men’s Shed’. Our target will be for this to be recognized internationally and to stimulate men’s choir interest around the world.

The weekend will be set out as follows:

  • Friday 11th Evening: Arrival, Social sing-along Night
  • Saturday 12th : master class, rehearsal, Lecture/panel discussion, Quiz Night
  • Sunday 13th : Rehearsal, Final Concert

Please find attached resources for the concert programme including sheet music and recording of all the voice parts for all the songs

Finally we will be inviting Head conductor Ivars Cinkuss form Latvia to help teach us and motivate us for the weekend, plus a few other prestigious musical guests to accompany the weekend.

More information will follow shortly, and if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me, I will hope you will join us on this vital journey to uphold that old, highly prized tradition of the Men’s Choir.
