One of the most popular personalities associated with Boorowa’s Songs of Hope concerts over recent years, Gospel Folk Musical Director Brian Triglone, was awarded an OAM in this week’s Queen’s Birthday Honours.

Brian received his award for services to choral music in the Australian Capital Territory.

He came from a musical family, and has been deeply involved in choral singing throughout his career.

Brian was Musical Director of the Gospel Folk Community Choir from 1999 to 2017, founder of the Credo Quartet in 2002, organiser of ‘Carols Under the Stars,’ at Pearce, ACT, since 2007 and Assistant Conductor of the Australian Rugby Choir from 1996 to 1998.

One very significant activity with which Brian was associated was as Founder and Inaugural Musical Director of the Alchemy Chorus, which is a choir for Alzheimer’s sufferers and their carers, in 2016.

His Boorowa friends will join with those in the ACT and beyond to congratulate Brian on this award, which is extremely well deserved.
