Event Details

'Amazing - Evocative' These are words that will immediately spring to mind when the Sunshine Coast Choral Society performs the 'Seascapes' concert.

The programme is attractive, innovative and modern. Waltzing Matilda, Rainstorm and Living Shells by the celebrated Stephen Leek commence the afternoon’s performance. Dulcie Holland is also represented in her Adoramus Te and Celtic Prayer, as is Malcolm Williamson in his Cassation for Audience, Choir and Piano, The Stone Wall. Natasha Koch and The Backroads Ensemble will not only provide the accompaniment to most of the items, but will contribute special solo spots.

This concert will air the premier performance of Seascapes for Female Choir, harp and percussion – specially commissioned for the Choir and the Celebration of the Sunshine Coast’s Anniversary this year. The music, composed by Jennifer Carr (the Society’s president) and Jennifer Barry (the Society’s ex-president) features movements of a programmatic genre symptomatic of the Sunshine Coast, and will include projected photos and an art and textile display to complement the overall afternoon’s musical programme. This is a concert not to be missed and with a difference not seen anywhere on the coast before. The Concert is proudly supported by the Sunshine Coast Council’s grant programme and tickets are available from members,at the door, or through our website.

Featured non-Australian music: Arirang - Lon Beery, A Festive Alleluia - Mary Lynn Lightfoot
