Tours

The Australian Girls Choir has toured on thirty-eight occasions since 1989 to destinations all over Australia and to every corner of the globe. Over one hundred choristers took part in the AGC’s tours in 2016; broadening their musical and cultural horizons and forging life-long friendships.

We are immensely proud of the reputation that our touring choristers have achieved, and after all these years of meeting and performing with choirs from around the globe we are sure that our approach to touring is unique. Host groups are amazed that we bring girls together from across five cities, who after three days of rehearsal together, can present a show that is of a professional standard. Beyond this, people we encounter cannot believe how much we fit in to each day as a “family” of 62 nor can they imagine how we maintain the discipline, energy and endless positivity. Experience goes a long way but we couldn’t do what we do without taking a carefully selected group of talented and committed girls. Parents reliably tell us that their daughters return from tour changed for the better and remark about improved self management, increased confidence and a better understanding of the world outside their own
 
TOURING WITH THE AGC IN 2017

We had a wonderful response to our invitation to tour this year and were delighted by the quality of the auditionees.

56 choristers will participate in our National Tour in June and July visiting Bendigo in Victoria and Launceston and Hobart in Tasmania over a two-week period. In September and October, another 62 choristers will participate in our USA Tour visiting San Francisco, Flagstaff (Grand Canyon), Phoenix and Los Angeles for three weeks.
