Hailing from Australia, an interactive choir will unite Holland America Line guests for several memorable events of fun and song during a 14-day Australia and New Zealand voyage on Jan. 27, 2024.

“Pub Choir is a massive hit in Australia and gaining fans around the globe,” Kacy Cole, vice president of marketing for Holland America Line, said in a news release.

“Guests who are new to Pub Choir will quickly see why this dynamic show is popular Down Under and a highlight for Holland America Line’s award-winning live music performances on Noordam,” Cole said.

Prior music experience is not a prerequisite as Pub Choir, described as the world’s funniest, easiest music lesson, transforms regular audiences into an incredible choir during their three performances during the 14-day Australia and New Zealand voyage.

A former music teacher turned world-renowned music director, Pub Choir leader Astrid Jorgensen will divide the crowd into three groups to harmonize performances of popular tunes.

“I can’t wait to hit the high seas with some ‘High Cs’ on Holland America Line,” Jorgensen said. “It’s ok if your singing voice is rusty. Just bring your mouth to the show and I’ll help with the rest.”

A recent recipient of a Medal of the Order from Australia, Jorgensen founded Pub Choir in Brisbane, Australis, in 2017. In 2020, Pub Choir transformed into Couch Choir which helped connect people during pandemic lockdowns.

Pub Choir has since returned to in-person performances and has been applauded by music celebrities like Kate Bush, Mariah Carey and Sit Barry Gibb.

In addition to three Pub Choir performances, the cruise will feature Step One Dance Company on World Stage, talented piano players at Billboard Onboard and live rock and popular dance music in Rolling Stone Lounge.

Noordam’s 14-day voyage embarks in Auckland, calls at six ports in New Zealand where guests can visit the idyllic beaches of Tauranga, explore the vibrant communities of Christchurch and Napier, relax in Timaru and discover historic Dunedin before sailing through Fiordland National Park.

The ship then sails to three Australian ports including Hobart, the creative capital of Tasmania, cosmopolitan Melbourne and metropolis Sydney, where guests disembark.
