Big Sing 2020 is now Big Sing 2021

In conjunction with our collaborators, Adelaide Youth Orchestra and Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus, and with the cooperation of Tatachilla Lutheran College and the Adelaide Festival Centre, we have been able to postpone the complete Verdi Requiem package until September 2021.

The decision was determined by the capacity of our collaborators to lock in the necessary rehearsal period required to provide a high quality performance due to social distancing restrictions.

Performance Dates:
Sunday 19 September 2021: Tatachilla Lutheran College, McLaren Vale
Saturday 25 September 2021: Adelaide Festival Theatre
See the Chorister Page for full mandatory rehearsal and performance schedule

We already had record registrations at this early stage, so the decision is disappointing to say the least, but on the positive side, we are super-well prepared for 2021!

Registrations for 2020 have automatically been transferred to 2021 and no action is required. However, anyone requiring a refund should send a request by email

Big Sing McLaren Vale is committed to the health and safety of its singers, musicians, audience, crew and committee. These are uncertain times and we will be monitoring the situation constantly, as well as taking the advice of the authorities.

In the meantime, stay safe everyone.

About Us

The Big Sing provides a platform for choristers to join a massed choir to sing the best loved classical choral works with a symphony orchestra and professional soloists. This is what people say:

Thank you for giving me the opportunity of a lifetime. NEVER did I think that I would get the chance to sing with a very large Choir and a Symphony Orchestra”; “Thanks for letting me sing in the requiem. An enjoyable experience…Honestly singing tonight helped me to enjoy singing again.”
