Click here to read about our Festival for Peace at the end of April 2015, which included premiere performances of A Passion for Peace — a brand new choral drama in the style of an oratorio by Glenda Cloughley. The festival and oratorio celebrated the centenary of the International Congress of Women, which took place at The Hague from 27 April - 1 May 1915. 1300 women from countries at war and neutral countries gathered to find ways of stopping the war and establishing permanent peace.


A Chorus of Women

A Chorus of Women has been singing since 18 March 2003 when 150 women filled the Australian Parliament with a lament for the people of Iraq as the Federal Government announced that Australia was going to war.

We continue to re-sound current meanings of the role the Citizens’ Chorus played in the ancient theatre of Athens when democracy was new and vibrantly participative.

A Chorus of Women has given over 150 public presentations of original music, drama, and civic conversations about the great issues of our time. Our repertoire has grown to more than 70 original songs and three major productions, and we have produced three CDs and two DVDs.
