Mission Statement

The Perth Choral Institute’s objective is to provide first class education to singers in a variety of styles. Through doing this, PCI aims to forge links between all major vocal ensembles and educational institutions within the State of Western Australia.

There are two principal methods that the Perth Choral Institute will use to provide this education: Choral Courses for young people and an ongoing series of PCI Boot Camps for the wider community.

Through these two different styles of learning experience, WA singers of all ages and genres will have the opportunity to develop their singing skills, forge friendships with like-minded people in their community, and build self-confidence in their abilities, all the while having fun.

The Perth Choral Institute originated as the initiative of Matthew Hughes, former Principal of John Septimus Roe Anglican Community School. The school has a long tradition of supporting the Arts in young people, particularly in the field of choral music. Over the years, many JSRACS students were fortunate to be sent on courses around the world, including those held in Eton, UK.

It was felt that a similar experience to these should be nurtured within WA, which may allow a wider group of singers to experience what it is like to be part of a high level ensemble. As a result, the Perth Choral Institute was founded in 2017.
