Event Details

To celebrate the richness and diversity of our modern society, Sydney Chamber Choir explores musical intersections between old and new, tradition and innovation, East and West. The first half of the concert emphasises the continuity between ancient Europe and modern Australia with a pairing of music by ancient masters Josquin, Tallis and Hildegard with newer work by celebrated Australian composers. We then explore links between Asia, the Torres Strait and contemporary visions of the landscape in a rich program that integrates the Western choral tradition with the exotic sounds of the Chinese erhu and guzheng. Like our contemporary culinary tradition, this musical journey presents a fascinating fusion of influences to create a refreshingly spicy dish of sonic delight.

Performers: Sydney Chamber Choir with Paul Stanhope (conductor) and guest artists Nicholas Ng (erhu) and Jing-Jing Lu (guzheng)

Featured non-Australian music: Works by Grainger, Hildegard of Bingen, Josquin and Tallis.
