Event Details

When sound fills space it’s a visceral experience. You can hear the architecture… See the music… Feel our voices in motion.
We’re eagerly looking forward to giving our first concerts at Carriageworks, in the vast expanse of Bay 17. We’ll be making full use of the space, so don’t expect the choir to stand still and sing in front of you!
The program of baroque, modern and Australian pieces is architecturally inspired, ranging from Bach’s glorious contrapuntal structures to new music by Lyle Chan – a meditation for saxophone and choir on Bach’s violin music, culminating in a climax of operatic proportions. Along the way are works of intense spirituality and beauty from Henryk Górecki and Arvo Pärt.
Performing this program with our Symphony Chorus will be Australian saxophone virtuoso Michael Duke, weaving the spellbinding sound of his instrument through the voices of our choir. Come experience choral music in a distinctive architectural space as we explore the spatial possibilities of sound.

Featured non-Australian music: Purcell, JS Bach, Górecki, Pärt.
