Kelly Shepard was welcomed as Musical Director of Brisbane City Sounds in November 2017. He has sung professionally for 25 years, and has extensive experience in singing and directing barbershop.
Shortly before taking on the directorship of Brisbane City Sounds, Kelly relocated with his family to Australia from Los Angeles. Kelly previously sang baritone in five-time international bronze medallist quartet, Metropolis, and was a member of the award-winning Barbershop Harmony Society chorus, Masters of Harmony.
Kelly's directing credits include Pacific Sound Chorus in California, the a cappella group Kol Echad, and the
Los Angeles chapter of HaZamir (an international Jewish youth choir). He is a highly experienced musical educator, and we are thrilled that he has found a new chorus 'family' in Australia, with Brisbane City Sounds.
