For over 35 years, Adelaide Chamber Singers has revelled in the sonorities of centuries of choral music and we sing not so much because we can, but because we must. 2021 is an offering of some of the best music the choral world has to offer. Music to discover or rediscover, to journey with, to soar with, to embrace, sung for you with a renewed vigour and sense of purpose.

We are all drawn to light. We plan the daily activity of our lives by the rhythm of its presence and absence; we use it to symbolise our emotional well-being; it is a metaphor for our understanding; we crave its spark for renewal; we seek its heat for warmth; we have made it a metaphor for hope – especially when we catch glimpses of it at the end of a long dark tunnel; and even in our funeral rites we sing of its power to bestow a peaceful eternity. For us, lights in the distance have often come to represent everything that is comforting, safe and familiar. Lights in the distance are often a sign that we are nearing home. Or if not home, then perhaps the next adventure!
