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.

Carmina Burana

Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana is undoubtedly one of the most popular pieces of music ever written for choir and orchestra. Often used in film scores and advertising, it has captivated audiences around the world, from the first bars of its memorable opening movement, ‘O Fortuna’.

Featuring the CCS Chorus prepared by Music Director Dan Walker, soloists Rachael Duncan, Tobias Cole and Andrew O’Connor, the Canberra Children’s Choir and the Seasoned Voices choir.

Dynamic conductor Leonard Weiss will be in one of his last concerts before heading overseas to study with US maestro Marin Alsop, world-renowned conducting teacher. Congratulations Lenny!

Join us in supporting our young musicians in a night of music to remember.
