Who we are
Founded in 1979, WRPS is a not-for-profit community partnership supported by Waverley and Randwick Councils. Consisting of a chamber choir and a chamber orchestra, WRPS is one of the very few groups to offer orchestral and choral musical experiences. Since 2004 the orchestra has been known as the Eastern Sydney Chamber Orchestra (ESCO). Since 2005, the choir has been known as the Eastern Sydney Chamber Choir (ESCC).
What we do
WRPS specialises in early classical music such as Haydn and Beethoven. From time to time the group expands its musical horizons by performing repertoire from the Romantic period and beyond, offering a diverse musical experience for local players and audiences alike. We perform 4 times a year in the Randwick and Waverley areas, and occasionally in country NSW.
WRPS is dedicated to supporting young up and coming talent by offering conducting, performance, and soloist opportunities which are rarely available. Our track record speaks for itself with performers and soloists now holding positions in Professional orchestras and conductors with international careers.
