WELCOME to a truly extraordinary concert season! We are opening our 2013 series with our most ambitious concert yet – a performance of Verdi’s great “Messa da Requiem” in the Sydney Town Hall. Following the success of our biennial “Sydney Sings Messiah” events, we will again be inviting guest singers to join us under the banner of “Sydney Sings Verdi” on April 28th, 2013, making this a great community event with a massed choir of over 300, this time as part of our subscription series.
Our second concert, in the Great Hall on 18th August, features Bach’s Saint John’s Passion, a timeless masterpiece: uncompromising, rugged, direct but also very human and moving.
And finally our last concert of 2013 will feature Vivaldi’s famous Gloria and the discovery of the lesser known composer Zelenka, with his Missa Dei Patris: wonderful music from this Czech composer, a contemporary of Bach, but in his very own and beautifully distinctive style.
Have you thought about taking advantage of a Subscription? The total price for the 3 concerts is $110 (a saving of up to $14), and you also have the opportunity to order your programmes at a discounted price. In addition you will have a seat reserved in the Subscribers seating area, and may enter the Great Hall through a separate entrance, avoiding the queue!
