Australian Rosny Childrens Choir
The Australian Rosny Children's Choir started in 1967 by music teacher Jennifer Filby, has toured extensively within Australia, performing in all the major concert venues, and appearing with the Sydney, Melbourne, South Australian and Tasmanian Symphony Orchestras.
The choir has earned high praise from such eminent conductors as Prof. Henry Krips, Patrick Thomas, Georg Tintner, Gerald Krug, Vanco Cavdarski, Jose Serebrier, Richard Divall, Thomas Meyer, George Dreyfus and Leonard Dommett.
The choir was the first from the Southern Hemisphere to take part in the International Eisteddfod at Llangollen Wales, in 1971, and after receiving international acclaim for its performances there, it was selected by the Australian Government to represent it in the first cultural exchange with the People's Republic of China in 1975.
The Choir has also performed in Singapore, Hong Kong, the Philippines, New Zealand and Japan. It is constantly in demand to perform at conventions, recitals, cruise ship dockside welcomes and on board performances, church services, charity concerts and television appearances. Australian music plays an important role in the repertoire of the Choir, and it has commissioned and performed several new works.
