Who is CHIME Choir

The Chime Choir was founded in 1984 by renowned performer and educator kevin Casey, as a teaching choir for young singers. His passion fo rmusical excellence laid the foundations for Chime to evolve into the choir it is today.

Artistic Director Marten Visser, leads Chime with professionalism, enthusiasm and vision for the future, nurturing a community that makes fresh and exciting music. His passion for people and singing challenges choristers to achieve their very best at all times.

The choir's diverse membership is united by the desire to sing choral music that speaks to the heart and mind, exploring the world - past, present, and emerging. We are committed to creating a community where people have the opportunity to sing music that challenges and delights.

Each year, Chime presents a number of concerts as well as performing at weddings and funerals, seasonal festivals, and special events, at locations ranging from shopping centres and wineries to churches and performing arts centres. Chime has also toured America, England, Germany, Italy, and Austria, and participated in several international choral competitions.

In April 2018, our choristers had the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall in New York when Chime was invited to join a world choir, singing compositions by Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo as part of the DCINY Dreamweaver concert.

Chime has been privileged to collaborate with many wonderful choirs and musicians. These include Southern Voices, The Idea of North, Exaudi, and Sweet Mona’s Choir, as well as singers Roy Best and Andrea Bocelli, organists Hugh Fullarton and Thomas Heywood, and various bands and orchestral groups including Boroondara Brass.
