Beef Australia Community Chorus

Perform with Opera Queensland as part of the Beef Australia Community Chorus for Are You Lonesome Tonight

Opera Queensland’s 2021 regional tour, Are You Lonesome Tonight, will be the most significant in the company’s history and a centrepiece to our 40th anniversary celebrations.

Visiting more than 30 locations and travelling almost 7,000 kilometres, the tour takes over regional Queensland with a celebration of Opera and Country music throughout May and June.

The Beef Australia Community Chorus will perform as part of Are You Lonesome Tonight at the world premiere in Rockhampton on Tuesday 4 May 2021.

Singers of all abilities in Rockhampton and surrounding towns are encouraged to sign up for the community chorus to be a part of this spectacular new show.

Rehearsals will take place in April, ahead of the performance at Beef Australia 2021 on Tuesday 4 May.

All chorus members will need to have read and agreed to the Opera Queensland Volunteer Agreement Terms, available here.

Register now for the Beef Australia Community Chorus and our local chorus master will be in touch to confirm rehearsal details.
