The festival builds community engagement and connection through a shared, high-quality singing experience. An expert faculty of international conductors leads participants ranging from unskilled and skilled amateurs to professionals who are interested in learning more about centuries of excellent Jewish choral music from around the world. It takes place over 2 days, with a public concert featuring festival participants.
Modelled on the North American Jewish Choral Festival, it is the only event of its kind in Australia. The AJCF is open to all, and encourages singers of all ages to engage in a challenging, rewarding musical and cultural experience in community with their peers.
