Members perform at many concerts throughout the year for community groups, with at least two major concerts at the Woodville Town Hall. We sing with orchestras, brass bands, concert bands, accompanied by the piano and unaccompanied. Funds for the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Foundation are raised and, when in the country areas, for that rural community. We also sing at weddings, council ceremonies, in shopping centres at Christmas, church services, special events and general events - anywhere we can spread the joy of singing.
In 1995 the Choir made its first recording, and in 2001, to celebrate 20 years of singing, a CD was recorded called ‘The Colours of Our Choir’.
Our second CD entitled "Silver Memories" was recorded in 2007 in recognition of our 25th Anniversary.
In 1999 The Woodville Concert Choir performed Handel’s “Messiah” with the Unley Chamber Orchestra and in 2002 performed with the Band of the South Australia Police. We were invited back to sing with that band at their Proms Concert in the Adelaide Town Hall in June 2005.
A highlight of 2002 was our performance with members of the S.A. Country Choral Association Inc. in ‘Two Captains’, a tribute to explorers, Matthew Flinders and Nicolas Baudin, as part of the ‘Encounter 2002’ celebrations in South Australia. Performances were held at Port Lincoln, Victor Harbor and the Woodville Town Hall.
Ensembles have from time to time enjoyed considerable success in competition performances, including Eisteddfods in Adelaide, Millicent and Strathalbyn. In 2000 and 2003 Rosemary’s Ladies Choir performed at the “Voices of Women Festival” in Melbourne.
The Woodville Concert Choir Inc also supports vocal solo sections of the Adelaide Eisteddfod by donating prize-winner awards.
