2020 has passed and in 2021 the Grads are “Singing On”.
In our first concert for this year the choir will perform for the first time at the historic Fort Street High School in Petersham. A varied program will see pieces by Beethoven, Fauré, Saint-Saëns, Brahms and others, as we return to the joy of choral singing. Included in this program are Beethoven’s beautiful but rarely performed Opferlied and Elegisher Gesang, and the Brahms Geistliches Lied.
The concert also includes a new work by Christopher Bowen for choir and ensemble orchestra. A Fragment of Sappho is a paean to love based on the tale of Helen of Troy, and was commissioned by a distinguished Sydney surgeon as a gift to his wife on the occasion of a special wedding anniversary. This performance will be the premiere of this powerful and touching composition.
These works will be accompanied, in various combinations, by piano, string quartet, harp, oboe and horn.
Amy Moore once again joins us as our soprano soloist. Amy is an accomplished soloist whose broad repertoire includes a particular focus on baroque and contemporary music.
