QWIRE

The Canberra Gay and Lesbian Qwire consists of approximately 120 members from all walks of life, ranging from late teens right through to the wiser generations; all drawn together by their common love of music and singing.

We are a non-auditioned choir, meaning that people of varying skill levels and experience can come and develop their passion for singing and even learn a few new tips and tricks every week in rehearsal, including not only vocal abilities and strength but stagecraft and even some choreography, which we call Choralography.

As the Qwire celebrates its 25th birthday this year, it continues to grow in size, diversity and the quality of its performances. The Qwire is now highly regarded within the straight and queer community not only for its vocal strength and performances but also for its relaxed and social atmosphere. The Qwire brings together people from diverse sections of the ACT queer community and their allies and supporters to challenge stereotypes, and more importantly, build a bridge between the queer community and the non-queer community of Canberra through music.

We perform extensively within Canberra each year at various functions - ranging from the prestigious, including the National Gallery of Australia, Parliament House and the MusicACT Music Awards (MAMA's), to school fetes, folk festivals, and social and remembrance functions held by other queer community groups. Each year we receive an increase in the number of invitations for us to perform, including performances interstate and overseas.
