Our program for 2022 has now been finalised and we are pleased to invite you to join us in celebrating our 70th anniversary year. This is also the 30th year that the Sydney University Graduate Choir has had the privilege of singing under the direction of Christopher Bowen OAM.
If you are a subscriber who deferred part or all of your subscription tickets because concerts were cancelled during 2020 or 2021, you will be eligible for credits toward this year’s subscription. Each of you will soon receive an email advising you about the credit you are entitled to.
Discover NSW vouchers may be used toward the cost of tickets or subscriptions.
If you have not done so before, we would encourage you to consider subscribing to this series, as a subscription provides substantial savings compared with single ticket purchases.
Here is our 2022 program:
May: Sunday 8th. (Mothers’ Day) ‘Singing On 2022’. This concert offers a curated collection of choral and instrumental pieces, similar to our very successful May 2021 concert.
August: Sunday, 14th. ‘In Paradisum’. In this concert we present Fauré’s well-loved “Requiem” and Schubert’s serene “Stabat Mater”, at The Great Hall, University of Sydney.
November: Sunday 13th. Sydney Sings™ ‘Imagine …’ This concert will deliver the inaugural performance of “The Redfern Oratorio”, a new piece written by composer Christopher Bowen and librettist Pamela Traynor. Commissioned by Robyn Williams AO, it is based on Paul Keating’s 1992 Redfern Speech, which was delivered 30 years ago this year and represented a significant turning point in terms of policies affecting Indigenous Australians. This concert, which will be held at the Sydney Town Hall with a guest choir, also includes a performance of Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”.
The Brochure included here provides you with details of subscriptions, ticket purchasing and guest choir participation.
We greatly appreciate your support for the Sydney University Graduate Choir and look forward to the opportunity to come together once again, to share the joy of music.
President, Sydney University Graduate Choir
