Women of Note is the performing name of The Central Victorian Women's Choir Inc. Under the talented and generous direction of Laura Dusseljee, the choir has grown from strength to strength and has developed a reputation for performance excellence. They sing an eclectic range of songs - contemporary, pop, show tunes, gospel, sacred and classical. And this year the choir is learning songs in Swedish, Finnish, Japanese and French.

This dynamic choir of around 60 women meets weekly to share a love of singing, fostering deep respect, camaraderie and many lasting friendships. Women of Note love performing together and are regularly heard at community events such as Relay for Life, Mia Mia Big Sing and Bendigo Health's Memorial Services. They were honoured to sing at the opening of Bendigo's stunning Ulumbarra Theatre in 2015, as well as giving a concert at Tarrengower Women's Prison.

The Women of Note Choir is touring to New Zealand during October to perform with the Auckland Boys Choir and attend Sing Aotearoa 2016 in Rotorua.

Auckland Boys’ Choir stands for Excellence in choral singing for boys. In 1969 the Lions Club of Auckland, with advice from the Education Department Adviser in Music, founded the Auckland Boys Choir. Over 200 boys were auditioned in October of 1970 and approximately 70 were selected as probationers. The choir was born.

The Choir’s first major public performance was in November 1971 in St Matthew’s Church in Auckland, to a large audience. The ‘Herald’ critic headed the choir’s first review - “This choir sings with beauty and understanding.” 2010 saw the 40th jubilee of the choir with special functions held in the middle of the year to mark the occasion. Boys who had passed through the choir over the 40 years were involved in the celebrations.
