A brief history of The Blenders Chorus

The Blenders have been entertaining corporate galas, civic receptions, and sporting and commemorative events n South East Queensland for over 35 years. Formed in 1988 and originally an all male chorus called ‘Banana Blenders’, the club became a mixed chorus in 2022.

An icon of the Gold Coast, The Blenders have provided outstanding service to the community through mentoring young leaders, inter-generational outreach, establishing choruses and bringing cheer and celebration to the Gold Coast, Australia and internationally.  

As a not-for-profit organisation, the Blenders Chrous is funded mainly from member subscriptions however they are also available for hire.

Their repertoire includes a wide range of musical genres from Johnny O’Keefe to Gershwin, from classical to rock and roll, including ballads, love songs, old songs, new songs and Australiana. All are presented in four-part a cappella (unaccompanied) vocal harmony in the Barbershop or SATB-related style.

The Blenders Chorus provides entertainment for corporate functions, large and small events, product launches, citizenship ceremonies, official openings, sporting event, conferences, seminars, weddings, Valentine’s Day, Mothers Day, Christmas Caroling and many other special occasions.

Funding is directed back to the chorus so that they can continue to offer the community the delight of this unique style of entertainment. The Blenders have been eight times national chorus champions - and twice silver medalists. They are twice Pan Pacific Chorus Champions and have represented Australia in international competition - in 1999 (Anaheim, California) and again in 2007 (Denver, Colorado).
