Thank you to everyone who came to our concert Bach, Britten, Bernstein last week: it’s always a great joy to be able to showcase our work to an even wider audience. If you were there, I'm sure you'll agree that the acoustics of the City Recital Hall and the performance of Orchestra of the Antipodes all combined to make the performance very special.
We've put together a video to thank you for coming, and for all your support of Saint Mary’s Cathedral Choir. In the video you can hear some of our boy Choristers talking about their experiences singing in the City Recital Hall for the concert and about the Choir in general. If you weren’t able to join us for the concert, then this video provides an excellent opportunity to hear some of the performance, which was recorded live.
Next year we are celebrating our 200th anniversary. You will be hearing more from me about our anniversary and our plans for 2018 soon. This is a real milestone: not only for us in Saint Mary’s Cathedral Choir, but also for Australia, as we are the oldest currently-operating musical ensemble in the country.
Thank you again for coming to the concert. The Choir is currently in recess during the school holidays: we will return when the Lay Clerks sing at High Mass and Vespers and Benediction on Sunday 16th July. You can see when and what we’re singing on our Schedule. Our next major concert is Monteverdi’s Vespers, in collaboration with The Song Company, on 15th September. Tickets will shortly be available for sale: check back shortly.
