CCS presented two performances of Rejoice in the Lamb – a program of English sacred music from the 19th and 20th centuries. From Charles Parry’s blockbuster anthem I Was Glad to Imogen Holst's gentle and introspective Hymne to Christ, the program is a sublime combination of peaceful and rousing tunes, always joyful and hopeful.

Read review - Len Power, Canberra Critics Circle
Canberra Choral Society and the National Capital Orchestra present Rossini's Petite Messe Solennelle. First performed in 1869, the music ranges from hushed intensity to boisterous high spirits, and abounds in the memorable tunes and rhythmic vitality for which Rossini became justly famous.
Conducted by Louis Sharpe, with Chorus Master Dan Walker the two organisations will come together on the Llewellyn Hall stage with soloists Sarahlouise Owens (soprano), Sonia Anfiloff (alto), Ryan O’Donnell (tenor) and Hayden Barrington (baritone).
