“This highly sought-after choir tours internationally every two years, winning major competitions and receiving many accolades,” says Acting Head of Music, Chris Artley. “The choir also performs at significant national events such as the ANZAC Dawn Service and at various sports games.”

Both Oliver and Thomas are studying voice with soprano Gina Sanders at the College and are key members of the Chapel Choir and All The King’s Men, under Mrs Sanders and Mr Steven Rapana.
