A Creative Ensemble

Coolamon Singers has been a welcome cultural presence in beautiful Burleigh Heads on
the Gold Coast in Queensland for 30 years. The choir welcomes singers of all ages and
backgrounds and performs a wide range of four-part choral music with a focus on
classical and sacred repertoire while also enjoying opera, light classical, and
contemporary arrangements. The choir takes pride in singing in at least five different
languages. It performs three major concert programs each year in various venues on the
Gold Coast.

The aim of Coolamon Singers is to create a dynamic group of singers committed to
continual growth and development in choral singing and musicianship, and to create
bonds with listening audiences and boost community pride through its concerts.
Coolamon Singers seeks to be a cultural force throughout the Gold Coast region, bringing
transformative musical performances that inspire and enrich. From time to time the choir
collaborates with other instrumental ensembles, orchestras and musicians. Recent
collaborations have included a full-scale performance of Vivaldi's Gloria RV 589 with
the Northern Rivers Symphony Orchestra and a concert of Chiaroscuro (Music of Light
and Darkness) which featured Fauré’s Requiem and highlighted internationally acclaimed
soprano, Gaynor Morgan.

Marco Bellasi

Musical Director

In 2021, award-winning conductor Marco Bellasi accepted the role of Coolamon Singers Musical Director, and so began a renaissance in the choir’s journey. Maestro Bellasi brings outstanding international experience as both a conductor and choir master in Europe, the UK and Australia. A favourite with audiences because of his lively and informative introductions to the works being performed, Marco aims to make concerts musically educational while being richly entertaining. His well-researched program notes are especially well-received by audiences. Meanwhile, choir members benefit from rehearsals rich with invaluable background on the music -its composer, the style and period, the historical context - shared by the Conductor to elevate understanding of the music.


Ayesha Gough


Australian pianist Ayesha Gough is developing her own style of unique and engaging performances grounded in traditional pianism. Her passion for finding new ways to connect with audiences has seen her branch out into the fields of improvisation, videography, and creative writing. As the recipient of the 2022 Michael Kieran Harvey Scholarship, she has developed Landings: an exploration of  Australian musical identity through improvisation, poetry, and film created within multiple landscapes. Landings is viewable on her YouTube channel. First prize-winner at the 2015 Lev Vlassenko Piano Competition, Ayesha performed with the Russian National Orchestra in December 2018, under the baton of Mikhail Pletnev, as part of a concert held in memory of Lev Vlassenko.
