VIRGINIA BOTT - CHOIR MASTER

Virginia Bott is a Melbourne-based Musician, Arranger and Choral Composer. She is one part of Indie Psych-folk band Brighter Later, who received critical acclaim here and overseas for their debut LP The Wolves, described by The Music as “nothing short of a masterpiece”. As well as being album of the week for both Triple R and PBS FM, The Wolves earnt them a nomination for the Australian Music Prize (AMP), and Best Emerging Artist in the 2013 The Age/Music Victoria Awards. As well as supporting international bands Calexico, Hooray For The Riff Raff and Tiny Ruins, Brighter Later  were handpicked by Martha Wainwright to support her on her Australian tour. 
Virginia is the founder and Musical Director of First Chorus Band Of Singers, an original contemporary choir hailing from Melbourne’s north-side. Performing regularly in Melbourne, over the past 10 years they have collaborated with musicians and artists of all mediums, lending their vocal force and Virginia’s choral arrangements to short film, live theatre, art installation, dance and contemporary music. They’ve sung in galleries, stairwells, ferris wheels, The Sydney Opera House, theatres, living rooms, churches, trams and are regulars on the streets of Melbourne. In 2012 they released Cave Of Lights, an exultant collaborative LP with folk artist Emma Tonkin, capturing “the gloriously redemptive sound of the human spirit alive in a house of skin and bone.” (Michael Dwyer, The Age 2012)

Over the last 10 years Virginia has led adult and children’s choirs, largely working with refugees and new arrivals in Melbourne’s inner-city primary schools. She’s conducted mass choir events of 500, led vocal workshops for people of all walks of life and mentored other choral directors and generalist primary teachers in music education.
