Perth has an extremely diverse choral community. Many of the finest singers across an array of styles either grew up in Perth, or now call it home. These genres include Opera, Jazz, Gospel, Sacred, Barbershop and Musical Theatre.
However, for many people who live in Perth, performing such genres may be only be a flight of fancy currently, as no obvious opportunities are easily available to try singing the repertoire.
The Perth Choral Institute aims to address this by providing regular Boot Camps that introduce singers to new forms of performing styles. Operating over a short time frame, each Boot Camp will be run by a leading WA performer in that particular field. After a number of rehearsals, which will take place over evenings and weekends, the ensemble will present a short recital, never longer than an hour, at an iconic venue in WA.
These Boot Camps are open to singers of all ages, and are never auditioned unless stated.
Please follow the links below to learn more about each Boot Camp.
There are presently no upcoming boot camps. Please check back soon for updates.
