The HOTA Choir

HOTA Choir presented by Gold Coast Airport

The HOTA Choir is a massed choir of local voices with a punchy and soulful repertoire of contemporary works under the music direction of Antony Zambolt and a team of guest conductors.

This exciting collaboration provides choirs and singers from all backgrounds a unique opportunity to rehearse contemporary vocal arrangements in a fun and informal environment.

So far the choir has performed at Concert for the Planet, Festival 2018 and with Neil Finn as well as performing carols at the Gold Coast Airport.

In 2019 the choir will be part of several exciting performances including Bleach Festival, GLOW and many more. The choir is also working with Bleach Festival to put together a small ensemble for a special performance with Mama Kin Spender.
