The Chamber Choir of the Sydney University Graduate Choir invites you to join them in A French Affair, an intimate concert perfectly timed to commemorate Bastille Day. The concert features inspirational music by Camille Saint-Saens, Gabriel Faure and Vincent D’Indy, with additional works by Mendelsohn, Brahms and Bach.
The SUGC Chamber Choir was established in 2004, and is composed of approximately 30 singers. The SUGC Chamber Choir regularly provides the more intimate and transparent sound that is sometimes required in sections of the major choral works performed by the SUGC choir.
The Chamber Choir also performs independently of the SUGC, and sings a varied repertoire which includes early music, classical favourites and contemporary songs. In 2011 the SUGC Chamber Choir under the direction of the SUGC Music Director Christopher Bowen, produced a CD with choral music by Saint Saens. Featuring the Messe op.4 as its centrepiece, it was recorded at the University of Sydney’s Great Hall, and accompanied by the University organist Amy Johansen. The CD will be available for sale during the concert interval.
A French Affair takes place at 2:30pm on Sunday 14th July at St Johns Hall, Robertson, Cnr Meryla Street and Hoddle Street (Illawarra Hwy), Carpark entrance via Meryla Street. Tickets $40 each, including afternoon tea at interval. 10% discount for booking in advance – contact Robert Goldsack on 0404 444 099 for tickets and further information.
