Brisbane Chorale - Our Journey
By Peter Roennfeldt

Brisbane Chorale is one of Queensland’s major choirs and has been a significant force in its home city’s cultural life for more than three decades. Its story is a journey – a voyage of discovery through the rich traditions of choral music, with many amazing musical experiences along the way including some world and local premières of new or unfamiliar repertoire.
Many eminent musicians, dedicated singers and fine orchestras have underpinned and nurtured Brisbane Chorale’s development, and it is privileged to maintain a close relationship with the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. Throughout its journey, Brisbane Chorale has collaborated with many other choirs and performance organisations, all the major local orchestras and various visiting ensembles, and it has also performed interstate and overseas.
This book documents that story and its place in Brisbane’s, indeed, Australia’s cultural history.

About the Author
Queensland’s musical heritage has a true champion in Professor Peter Roennfeldt.
His research into aspects of this vast topic commenced while studying at the University of Queensland in the late 1970s, and during the past decade or more he has published and lectured widely on the subject.
Since the mid-1980s, Peter Roennfeldt’s major professional focus has been the Queensland Conservatorium Griffith University. A highlight of his seven-year tenure as Conservatorium Director was its 50th anniversary in 2007, followed by the publication of his history of the institution, Northern Lyrebird. More recently he wrote the definitive biography of one of Queensland’s greatest musical pioneers, Madame Mallalieu, which was published by CopyRight Publishing in 2015.
In addition to lecturing, Peter Roennfeldt is a well-known keyboard performer and also has a long association with choral music, including five years serving as President of the Australian National Choral Association. He therefore has a close affinity with the subject of this book.
