Event Details

Inspiration! A composer receives it, and passes it on to the listener. JS Bach’s music is at the cornerstone of all choral music and has passed the test of time with flying colours. Canticum Chamber Choir (Emily Cox, conductor) presents a kaleidoscope of music tying together 'then and now' – what inspired Bach and those inspired by him.

The program includes two of Bach’s magnificent motets as well as works from the renaissance (Palestrina) and present day composers including Queensland-born Joseph Twist.

Associate artists Christopher Wrench (organ) and Katherine Philp (cello) will join Canticum in the atmospheric space of historic St Mary’s on the Cliffs at Kangaroo Point. To cap off a memorable musical afternoon, join the artists for refreshments overlooking the city after the concert – Bach with a Twist. Canticum is undertaking a major project to raise funds for the purchase of a chamber pipe organ for their own use in presenting baroque music and to share with other musical ensembles in Southeast Queensland. Bach with a Twist will be a special celebration of this exciting project.
