Excelsis is one of Melbourne’s most exciting and dynamic choirs, singing predominantly for Catholic liturgical events and giving regular concert performances. In recent years, highlights for the choir have included performing to capacity audiences at St Patrick’s Cathedral, St Paul’s Cathedral, and Deakin Edge (Federation Square).
The choir sings an extremely varied repertoire of both secular and sacred music, incorporating classical European works, hymnody, contemporary music, traditional African pieces, spirituals, gospel songs and Broadway favourites. Excelsis takes its name from the Latin word, meaning ‘highest’. Through the music which it sings, the choir aims to achieve the highest musical and performance goals.
Excelsis is a traditional four-part mixed choir (Soprano/Alto/Tenor/Bass). Choristers range from the very young, to the very young at heart, and all singers share a love of inspiring people and entertaining them through the gift of music.
