Sydney University Graduate Choir Sings On

May 8 @ 3:00 pm

Sydney University Graduate Choir’s first concert for 2022 will be a curated collection of choral and instrumental pieces, similar to the very popular and enjoyable concert presented in May 2021.

The program includes pieces by Dowland, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Saint-Saëns, Fauré, Bowen and others. It features a medley of songs from Bernstein’s masterpiece, West Side Story, and Beethoven’s Gellert Lieder, arranged for four-part choir by Christopher Bowen, as well as Fauré’s Cantique de Jean Racine. The concert includes  the world premiere of a new choral work, Diffugere Nives by young Sydney composer Courtney Cousins, a piece  especially commissioned by the Sydney University Graduate Choir. Conducted by music director, Christopher Bowen OAM, these works will be accompanied, in various combinations, by piano, string quartet and harp.

Amy Moore once again joins soprano soloist. Amy is an accomplished soloist whose broad repertoire includes a particular focus on baroque and contemporary music. Tenor Nathan Bryon, is an emerging star who has rapidly distinguished himself as an operatic singer and oratorio soloist with Sydney orchestras and choirs; Noah Peres will provide his brilliant piano accompaniment for our concert.
