October 10 – November 2 1986
The Treorchy Male Choir’s first tour of Australia in the late autumn of 1986 was an overseas trip of legendary proportions. A touring party of 100 people undertook this magnificent visit, organised by James Hardie Industries as a gift to the people of the country as a celebration of South Australia’s 150th anniversary. The all-expenses paid tour, where choristers were treated in a manner befitting the best VIPs, was simply astounding. The opportunity to perform in the country’s greatest concert halls, including the world-famous Sydney Opera House (the first Welsh Choir to do so) was simply unforgettable.
