If you happen to be in Brisbane this month, catch up with the 65th Australian Intervarsity Choral Festival (BIV2014), which is running there until July 20th.

In the 2014 ¬†‘IV’, choristers will ¬†perform two major choral concerts, one of which features JS Bach’s Mass in B minor. There are also lots of traditional social events including revues, an academic dinner, pub singing, post concert parties, amazing music and much fun.

A unique annual event since 1950, members of university choirs around Australia and sometimes overseas, gather in a capital city for two weeks of intensive rehearsals, workshops, and fun, culminating in one or more public performances.
