Who are we?
The Choral Group is made up of GAOS members who love to sing. Some members use the opportunity to "keep in voice" in between shows, while others simply like the chance to sing without the demands of a mainstage production.
Rehearsals usually take place on Monday evenings 18h30-20h30 at GAOS HQ.
The Choral Group performs 3 concerts per year, including the annual Christmas Carol Concert. They’ve performed everything from Tallis to Mozart, Brahms to Bernstein, Rutter and the list goes on. Their most recent performances have included Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius, Duruflé’s Requiem and excerpts from Handel’s Belshazzar.
The Choral Group season often includes a weekend workshop with invited clinicians, as well.

The Choral Group was founded in 1985 with just 16 singers and has performed in numerous locations around Geneva, including Victoria Hall, the Château de Prangins, the Auditoire du Calvin and even at Geneva’s Fête de la Musique! The group has often combined forces with other local choirs and orchestras, and in 2008 traveled to Durham, UK to combine with the Durham Choral Society Chorus and Orchestra for a concert of Mozart’s Requiem and Vesperae solennes de Confessore.
