We are delighted to welcome Dan Walker, acclaimed pianist, composer and singer, as the director of the Chorale this year. Bringing a wealth of experience, skill and energy and a deep understanding of choral interpretation, Dan has recently moved to Canberra. In amongst his many musical activities including composing, conducting, coaching and singing with many groups including the revered Song Company, Dan and The Oriana Chorale will together greatly enhance the musical offerings in the Canberra region during 2019.

We begin the year's delights with Autumn Landscapes, a collection of songs by modern and recent composers ranging from Ola Gjeilo to Samuel Barber.


The season of mists and mellow fruitfulness emerges in various guises in both classic harmonies and the more adventurous contemporary sounds of modern Baltic and Australian composers.

About the Oriana Chorale...

For over 40 years, Oriana Chorale has delighted audiences with beautiful songs, innovative programming and captivating harmonies. The human voice is the best instrument. Singing and hearing are amongs our most important and healthy pleasures.

 We rehearse weekly on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 10:00 at the Canberra Girls' Grammar School (the Rehearsal Studio). In addition to the three concerts we perform each year, we also take part in a range of activities across the ACT and surrounding region. We continue our long-standing historic association with University House at ANU by presenting a choral community workshop with Dan Walker on 30 June 2018, and contributing to the festivities at regular University House dinners.

Individual auditions are normally held by arrangement prior to a rehearsal. If you are interested in exploring membership of the choir, please email us via our Contact page, or email the Secretary: info[at] 

We are an inclusive group of musicians dedicated to quality performances of diverse repertoire from across the choral manuscript. Please take a moment to go through this site to learn more about us and our history, as well as details on attending one of our concerts.


Oriana is a partner of the Music Academy at Canberra Girls' Grammar School, and
acknowledges the generous support of the Academy in preparing and presenting
the Chorale's 2018 program.
