Vikram is a Fijian born Australian opera singer and musician currently studying a Bachelor of Music at the Queensland Conservatorium. Since 2015 he has been a member of many choral organisations in Brisbane; however, his barbershop origins began at age 8 with The Blenders (then, the Banana Blenders) on the Gold Coast. A founding member of Lucis, Brisbane’s foremost choral ensemble, he has performed extensively across a number of genres including Gesualdo, Machaut, Rachmaninov, Handel, Puccini, Wagner, and Mozart. Vikram will continue to perform as a singer and/or conductor over a wide range of recitals and operas. Vikram comes to Brisbane City Sounds in a return to barbershop and choral music as a director and hopes to inspire the chorus with a strong foundation in vocal health and production and a broad but sound range of repertoire. Brisbane City Sounds now looks forward to moving into a new phase with scheduled concerts, gigs and collaborations across Brisbane. We move with gusto into our new “living with COVID19” world and with our sights set on the Sweet Adelines Convention in Brisbane in 2023.
