Our 2017 Program
Sunday 26 March, 5.30pm, Verdure, Village Centre, National Arboretum
A program featuring all things Green to celebrate our inaugural performance in the stunning surroundings and soaring acoustics of the Village Centre at the National Arboretum. This twilight concert, with music by Randall Thompson, Ralph Vaughan Williams and Leonard Bernstein, among others, is not to be missed.
Saturday 3 June, 7.30pm, featuring the music of Carl Vine with the National Capital Orchestra, Llewellyn Hall
Following the success of our collaboration with the National Capital Orchestra last year in presenting Carmina Burana, we again team up with the NCO at Llewellyn Hall to perform the Australian composer’s 1996 Choral Symphony and Wonders, a new work commissioned and debuted last year by Sydney Philharmonia, a setting of Walt Whitman’s 1855 poem ‘Who learns my lessons complete?’
Sunday 10 September, Last night at the Proms with the Canberra Wind Symphony at Albert Hall
All the Pomp and Circumstance of London’s Last Night of the Proms here in Canberra.
Saturday 25 November, Messiah, Llewellyn Hall
Guest choristers and fabulous soloists will join us for the return of this beloved work which heralds the Christmas Season.
In addition to our busy concert schedule, we will be looking for more opportunities to ‘Sing for Our Supper” in 2017, performing at events that help spread the word on CCS and/or raise some valuable funds towards performance costs. Contact us if you have an event you would like us to participate in.
