About the festival

In May 2003, representatives from eight local choirs met and decided to form an association to host an annual event on the Sunshine Coast.
From 2004-2013 the Choral Festival was held at the Baptist Centre in North Buderim, and in 2014 it moved to the Lake Kawana Community Centre.
Since its incorporation on 8 December 2005, the Sunshine Coast Choral Festival Association committee members have continued to work together to organise this annual event.
The Choral Festival has become a highlight of the year for many choirs and their musical directors. It is a wonderful opportunity to share in our musical fellowship and the concert is well supported by our friends and the wider public.
A highlight is the massed choir finale, culminating with the thunderous rendition of Handel's Hallelujah Chorus.
For the first time since 2004, the event was cancelled in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic. In 2021 our choirs came together again for a singers-only event.
