Anzac Day is one day of the year we set aside to remember our fallen soldiers and our men and women who’ve represented our country to defend our shores and to help maintain world peace.
Often music can speak to a corner of our souls that is inexplicably hard to reach. Perth Symphonic Chorus’s offering of music, along with some contemporaneous writings and stories, sometimes sad, sometimes uplifting, will aid our reflections on the sobriety of the day.
Rutter’s memorable and tuneful Requiem for choir and orchestra begins the program, followed by smaller works such as Fauré’s Pie Jesu, an excerpt from Jenkins’ The Armed Man and beautiful unaccompanied arrangements of In Flanders Field and Danny Boy. Our concert ends with The Last Post being played as sunset approaches.
Sunday April 19th at 2.30pm in Christ Church Anglican Church, cnr Queenslea Drive & Stirling Highway, Claremont.
Saturday April 25th at 2.30pm in St Mary’s Anglican Church, 9 Ridge St, South Perth.
