Ein Deutsches Requiem

Saturday 24 July 2021, 3.00pm

Llewellyn Hall, ANU

Emerging from the enforced hibernation of 2020, the Canberra Choral Society and National Capital Orchestra are incredibly pleased to continue their traditional annual collaboration with the performance of Johannes Brahms’s Ein Deutsches Requiem. This is Brahms’s most personal work – a true masterpiece that established his unmistakable musical voice and timeless reputation.

Join us to delight in this sensational music for an unforgettable performance conducted by Leonard Weiss featuring Song Company soprano Rachel Fink and baritone Andrew Fysh, with chorus master Dan Walker.

Music for Voices & Brass

Canberra Choral Society is delighted to commence their 2021 season with the sound of trumpets, trombones, and glorious voices.

Join us as we explore the music of Andrea and Giovanni Gabrieli, whose works filled the great space of St Mark's Basilica in 16th century Venice.

We are also proud to present the Canberra premiere of Dan Walker's celebrated Mass of Deliverance. This uplifting mass setting combines the power of choir, brass and percussion with stirring effect. Join us in our long-awaited return to the Llewellyn Hall for this thrilling musical event.

Albert Hall

Online booking only. Tickets will not be available at the door.

After months away from the performance stage Canberra Choral Society is delighted to present a concert to simply celebrate the joy of singing together again. We will present a program of familiar works, including movements of Handel's The Messiah, frequently payed at this time of year, the opening chorus from Vivaldi's Gloria, and Bach's chorale Jesu Bleibet Meine Freude.

We also include some works that deviate from our usual fare: Victoria's beautiful O Magnum Mysterium, Bach's wonderful final motet Lobet den Herrn, alle Heiden, and Fauré's timeless Cantique de Jean Racine. And of course no December concert would be complete without a small selection of Christmas music, familiar and hopefully new and exciting!

Join us in the beautiful surrounds of the Albert Hall as we take you on a journey of reflection, hope and celebration.
