In the light of current circumstances we are – regrettably – unable to continue with the first two scheduled concerts of 2020, Handel’s Esther in May and Faure’s Requiem in August. Our current plan – to be confirmed in due course – is that these two concerts will be moved to May and August 2021.
We are still planning to go ahead in November 2020 with Sydney Sings™ Elijah in Sydney Town Hall with our orchestra and guest choir (more details here).
All 2020 subscribers will be contacted individually in the next week or two.
The choir will continue to have a number of outgoings during this period and so our choristers have been asked to pay their membership fees and give donations as usual. We will continue to be grateful for donations from all sources – these are tax-deductible. Details may be found here.
Thanks to all our audience in these difficult times. I hope that we shall be able to welcome you back to one of our concerts in the near future. In the meantime you may continue to listen to the choir on CD and periodically on the radio. In particular the choir’s recording of Saint-Saëns Messe de Requiem will be broadcast on Fine Music 102.5 on Sunday 26th April in Musica Sacra 9-10am.
Best wishes and stay safe
President, Sydney University Graduate Choir
