Upcoming events

Pub Choir ‘Love you Queensland’ Tour – 4–26 August

From 4–26 August Pub Choir will travel to 10 regional locations to spread the message that music unites us on their ‘Love you Queensland’ tour proudly supported by Multicultural Queensland Month. This is a great way for Queenslanders from different cultural backgrounds to get together and celebrate the thing we all have in common—our love of music.

Everybody can sing, and Pub Choir want to prove it so join them with hundreds of strangers at your local venue, learn Ben Lee’s song ‘We are all in this together’ in three-part harmony in 90 minutes, and perform it twice!

Find your closest venue, buy a ticket and sing to your heart’s content.
