Classics and Christmas

Saturday 5 December 2020

Two performances: 1.30pm and 5.30pm

Maximum audience each concert: 65

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.

The Q - Queanbeyan Performing Arts Centre

Unfortunately, because of the risk from the COVID-19 virus to our audience and choristers, this concert has been cancelled. We apologise to our friends and supporters.

 

Canberra Choral Society is proud to present an uplifting concert of music featuring some of the most beautiful works written over the last three centuries.
As we come out of one of the worst bushfire seasons in living memory, we have put together a program that inspires hope, solidarity and friendship. From the instantly recognisable styles of contemporary composers Arvo Pärt and Ola Gjeilo, to Bach’s iconic motet ‘Jesu Meine Freude’, this intimate program showcases the human voice’s vulnerability, its beauty, and its ability to inspire.
Join us at The Q, Queanbeyan’s Performing Arts Centre for an evening of wonderful music making.

‘You rise in perfection on the horizon of the sky, Living Aten, who started life.’

Pharaoh Akhenaten

Almost every facet of our lives is shaped by the movement of the sun and the moon. It’s no wonder that composers and poets throughout history have been fascinated by their beauty, their power, and their mystery.

Canberra Choral Society is delighted to present this intimate performance of glorious music inspired by the heavens: including music of the 12th century mystic Hildegard of Bingen, the stately grace of Edward Elgar’s Lux Aeterna, Scottish composer James Macmillan’s uplifting motet O Radiant Dawn, the work of Parisian prodigy Lili Boulanger, and works from contemporary composers Eriks Ešenvalds and Australian, Alice Chance.

Join us in the beautiful surrounds of Albert Hall as we take you on a journey skyward, exploring light, life, and the great expanse beyond.
