We invite you to experience the exquisite emotional highs and lows of the incredible works of Haydn, Vaughan Williams and Andrew Schultz in a program that communicates that which brings out the best, and worst in the human race. From the ominous use of solo drums in the Mass in time of War movement ‘Agnus Dei’ to the deeply moving plea for peace in Vaughan Williams’s dona nobis pacem, The Sydney Philharmonia Symphony Chorus and Chamber Choir will guide you through an outstanding evening of music which will also feature a new work by the visionary award winning composer Andrew Schultz lead by as always our extraordinary Artistic Director, Brett Weymark.
Performers: Conductor: Brett Weymark Alto: Fiona Campbell Tenor: James Egglestone
