The Brotherhood (QLD)

Conductor: Dr Anthony Young & Will Brown

SLC  Brotherhood

The Brotherhood from St. Laurence's College has a strong reputation as a substantial Male Changed Voice School Choir in Queensland. It is an un-auditioned group and is one of seven choirs at St. Laurence's involving 220 boys. The choir leads the school in sung worship and is also involved in concerts in the community. The Brotherhood has performed throughout Australia and has toured to New Zealand, China, England, Ireland, the United States, Hungary, Austria and Czech Republic. The group has attended every single Pemulwuy and the current members are thrilled to be able to continue this great tradition.


Bunbury Men of Song (WA)

Conductor: Greg Ross

Piano: Kathy Radomiljac


Bunbury Men of Song began in a very small way in 1998. 


Since that time through the talents of its Musical Directors and Accompanists and the dedication and hard work of its members, the choir has grown to have over 30 members, and is enjoying success and acclaim in its performances in Western Australian and across the rest of our nation. The choir has performed at Pemulwuy the triennial National Male Voice Festival in Brisbane on many occasions and has toured across Queensland, around Tasmania and performed at the Hobart Festival of Voice. In 2016 we participated in the Pusteria Valley International Choral Festival in Italy and then toured across the Western Front performing including singing with the Prague Male Voice Choir and in a solo concert in Paris. 


In 2020 Bunbury Men of Song were the only Australian Choir to successfully audition and be accepted to compete in the International Eisteddfod in Llangollen in Wales.  Sadly COVID put an end to all these plans. 


Our members come from almost every walk of life. We have students, those seeking work, labourers and trades people, professionals, retired persons and more. Some were born in Australia, others have come to make their home here from various places around the world. Our members comment on the ready welcome that they are given, the friendship they are offered and the genuine care and support they find as members of Bunbury Men of Song. Some of our members can read music and have sung before. Others have not had that opportunity, but together under the direction of our Musical Director, Greg Ross, we learn to blend our voices. 


We sing a wide variety of music from Brand New Australian compositions to those that are well loved standards of Male Choirs and most everything in between. Singing is known for its great health benefits, in terms of breathing, lowering blood pressure and raising a sense of self worth and enjoyment. It is part of the universal tribal nature of humanity of celebrating our lives and telling ours stories and histories through song.


In 2023 about 20 of our singers are joining us as we travel to Victoria to present workshops and performances in Bairnsdale, then across to Canberra to sing at the National War Memorial and present a concert in the ACT. Then we shall be travelling to Brisbane to sing at Pemulwuy the National Male Voice Festival 7 - 9 July. 



Grammarphonix (QLD)

Conductor: Peter Ingram & Bec Thomas

Piano: Michael Allport

Brisbane Grammar School has a thriving choral program with hundreds of boys singing together each week. The various auditioned and non-auditioned groups enjoy exploring a huge range of repertoire and performing at both school and public events. The award-winning Grammarphones (TTBB) and Chamber Choir (SSA) are renowned for their commitment to new Australian composition and sharing their love of music with their audiences, both local and international. For this year's Pemulwuy Festival these two groups combine to form the Grammarphonix, a mixed choir bringing together their finest treble and changed voices.


The Kelly Gang (VIC)

Conductor: Nicholas Dinopoulos

Piano: Timothy Mallis

The  Kelly  Gang
The Kelly Gang is comprised almost exclusively of former Choristers of the Australian Boys Choir, and is named in honour of the Choir's founder, Vincent J. Kelly.

Members of the ensemble have chosen to continue their vocal and choral interests beyond the stage of their voice change, learning to cope with their "new instrument". 

Although touring & performance is a secondary focus 
for the group it has, from time to time, appeared alongside the Australian Boys Choir & The Vocal Consort.

The Kelly Gang last toured alongside the Australian Boys Choir in 2018, encompassing Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic and including performances the famous St. Thomas' Church in Leipzig (where the composer J.S. Bach was music director) and Salzburg Cathedral.
