Welcome to the Chillingham Voices website

We are a very enthusiastic community choir based in the Chillingham area of Northern NSW, Australia. Our choirmaster, Harlie Axford, taught music at the Queensland University of Technology in Brisbane before retiring some 17 years ago.  We started in 2008 with 7 members and now have almost 40 people who regularly attend our weekly rehearsals. The people in our choir come from very diverse backgrounds with the majority never having sung in a choir before. If you're interested in joining the choir, contact us.
