Cheep Trill Community Choir
Cheep Trill is an exciting, edgy and colourful community choir based in Brisbane, Australia conducted by Emma Dean and assisted by Tony Dean. The choir is open to anyone, above the age of 14, who loves to sing! We learn and perform all sorts of music with a strong emphasis on original contemporary vocal arrangements and mashups written by Emma. So far, we’ve performed at The Laneway Festival Brisbane, The Empire Theatre Toowoomba, The Southport Community Centre for Coast To Coast Animal Rescue, Brisbane Powerhouse, Eat Street Markets and Concert Hall QPAC! We’re also getting a reputation for being Brisbane’s most colourful flash mob choir, ‘flashing’ at events for Ruckus Slam at The New Globe Theatre, Vulcana Women’s Circus, Velvet Helmet, Brisbane Festival and even on stage at the Triffid with Darren Middleton (Powderfinger)! In 2017 we accompanied John Farnham, Katie Noonan, Kate Ceberano, Clare Bowditch, Deborah Conway, Isaiah and Hannah Macklin and even featured on the SONY charity single of You’re The Voice, raising money for DV Connect. In 2018 we performed as part of the Commonwealth Games' Festival 2018, took part in our very first Anywhere Theatre Festival Show, and raised money for the Daniel Morcombe foundation at the Mitchelton Jan Powers Farmer’s Markets. In 2019, we performed our first international shows as part of the Cork International Choral Festival in Ireland where we won the PEACE award for the choir who most embodied the spirit of the festival. This year we also performed with Glenn Shorrock (Little River Band) as part of Queensland Music Festival’s Help Is On Its Way project, which used his powerful song as a way of opening up a dialogue about mental illness particularly with our men and boys. We also just finished filming our very first music video to a song written by some of our very own choir members at a recent Songwriting Workshop we hosted.
We’d love to sing with you! More details below...

Our choir is for anybody over the age of 14, who want to sing in a group with other members of the community.
We do NOT hold auditions, and we welcome advanced singers to shower singers.
Due to popular demand, we now have 2 choirs in 2 different locations - one in Woolloongabba (south Brisbane) and one in Enoggera (north Brisbane).
We normally hold rehearsals over an 8-10 week period, 3 times per year as follows
Woolloongabba: every Monday
Enoggera: every Tuesday
Both are from 6.30PM to 8.30PM
We have optional public performance/s (sometimes extraordinary perforamnces you WANT to be a part of) for you to enjoy each term.
