So much glorious music has been written for choirs that it’s hard to select just a few pieces for one concert. But responding to demand we will include some of your favourites such as Fauré’s In paradisium from his Requiem, Lacrimosa from the Mozart Requiem and Schubert’s Heilig, Heilig, Heilig, along with Ešenvalds’ new ethereal work The New Moon for unaccompanied 12 part choir and 6 tuned wineglasses which will be a total revelation to most listeners. In contrast to these gentle works the pace will be lifted with along with highlights from the Broadway musicals Porgy & Bess, West Side Story and My Fair Lady.
The second half of the concert will present some of the best songs from the jazz repertoire….Blue Skies, Mack the Knife, I Got Rhythm, and It Don’t Mean a Thing, to name a few, complete with a small jazz band and soloist.
Sunday August 12th – 2.30 venue Christ Church Grammar School Chapel
