FOR 40 YEARS the Oriana Chorale has delighted Canberra audiences with its performances of choral music from the centuries. Now, with our Music Director Peter Young, we are thrilled to provide an ongoing program of masterworks, celebrating the power of great music to challenge the mind and stir the emotions.

Peter is one of Canberra’s leading musicians as a choral conductor, organist and harpsichordist. Known for his deep understanding of music of the Renaissance and the Baroque in particular, and a past winner of a Canberra Critics Circle Award for innovative programming, Peter conducted very successful concerts with Oriana in 2014, 2015 and this year. We follow up with a 2017 program full of variety. 

After three successful concerts during 2016, including a full house for the final concert Golden Age - In dulci jubilo, and a great workshop ...

This year, 2017, marks the 40th anniversary of the foundation of the Chorale by Roger Wellman. There will be an even more celebratory concert in April 2017.
