Our Next Concert

Sunday 12 November 2017 – Verdi Requiem

The Sydney University Graduate Choir and its Music Director, Christopher Bowen OAM, is delighted to announce a performance of Verdi’s powerful Requiem in the magnificent Sydney Town Hall. Part of the Choir’s Sydney Sings… series, it is presented with a large guest chorus drawn from across NSW and a full orchestra of professional musicians brought together specially for the occasion.

The Verdi Requiem is a masterpiece of the Romantic era. Marshalling his resources as a dramatist and lyrical composer, Verdi, one of the greatest opera composers of all time, created a powerful and moving reflection on life and death.

The soloists assembled for this performance are a particularly fine ensemble of professional singers, all of whom have significant achievements in operatic repertoire to bring to their performance. It promises to be an unforgettable afternoon of music-making.
