Based in Adelaide, South Australia, Adelaide Chamber Singers was formed in 1985 by its director Carl Crossin. The ensemble has established a substantial reputation wherever it has performed and is widely recognised as one of Australia’s leading chamber choirs.
Our 2014 concert subscription season includes a collaboration with Adelaide’s own Zephyr Quartet, and a new production of Monteverdi’s sixth book of madrigals with director Andy Packer. Our subscription packages offer fantastic benefits, and have no service fees.

Praise for ‘Late Night in the Cathedral’
The Complete Motets of JS Bach
“…ACS's entirely grounded and deeply satisfying, ungimmicky readings floated over the myriad challenges with seeming ease that delighted the senses no end.”
“Der Geist hilft Schwachheit auf is harder to perform…but here too ACS acquitted themselves with the highest colours. Even Jesu, meine Freude, with its central five–part double fugue and trios thrown in, failed to unseat the singers. Intonation didn’t deviate one jot.”
“From the moment that the ACS began with “Komm, Jesu, Komm”, the respectful audience was transfixed and transported to whichever spiritual plane they chose.”
“St Peter’s was deservedly packed out on both nights, and the Adelaide Festival clearly ‘hit a six’ with this programming.”
