Recent Events

Under the artistic direction of Michelle Leonard OAM, Leichhardt Espresso Chorus are proud of their award winning record for performing a wide ranging repertoire and launching ambitious projects in collaboration with a wide variety of musicians and composers. Some of our most recent events are outlined below.

May 2022

Our first live concert in more than two years saw us return gloriously to the Hunter Baillie with a topical update of Handel.

Christmas 2021

In 2021 we again adapted to the new normal by putting on our first ever live streamed Carols on Norton from Leichhardt Town Hall.

Carols Performance 2021

Australian Art Music Recordings

In 2021, with the women and men rehearsing separately due to COVID, and no live performances possible, we recorded performances for two projects: Pictures at an exHERbition by Sally Whitwell and HIStory by Kevin Barker.

Christmas 2020

Silent Night & Hallelujah

With no Carols on Norton in 2020, we still managed to get together to sing for Christmas. Click on the links below to hear and watch us sing at the wonderful Hunter Baillie church in Annandale.

Until We Gather Again

Covid-19 didn’t stop us rehearsing and performing in 2020. Alice Chance created this online work especially for us, combining our recorded singing and thoughts about isolation during the pandemic. You can read more about the work, and watch the full video, via the link below.

Messiah Reimagined 2019

Messiah with a modern twist. Our coming of age concert at the fabulous City Recital Hall reinvents Handel once more with 21 new Australian works for our 21st birthday.
