CHIME is a contemporary choral organisation that endeavours to promote a relaxed atmosphere while presenting performances and concerts of the highest standard.
Since inception in 1984, under the leadership of Kevin Casey, it's founding Artistic Director, this Australian choral organisation has assisted hundreds of people in their appreciation and contribution to quality choral performances. Initially targeting young adults, the organisation has grown to encompass those between the ages of 15 years and 80 years, the emphasis being on youthful singing.
CHIME has two main performance concerts annually: one in June and one in September. In recent times CHIME has partnered The RSL, Carry On, Legacy and the City of Melbourne in the organisation of the ANZAC Day Concert which is held in the city of Melbourne.
Throughout the year CHIME also engages in various corporate and community functions. During the Christmas season, CHIME is in hot demand across many carols events and performances.
Opportunities to perform in regional Victoria, across the country and internationally have occurred every three to four years.
Our staff of music professionals is supported by a number of committees of volunteers.
Our Executive Committee of Management consists of professionals drawn from senior teaching ranks, corporate projects and administration, health care and the arts.
Our subcommittees cover such activities as social events, fund raising, grant applications, music administration, touring and finances.
