If you happen to be in Brisbane this month, catch up with the 65th Australian Intervarsity Choral Festival (BIV2014), which is running there until July 20th.
In the 2014 ‘IV’, choristers will perform two major choral concerts, one of which features JS Bach’s Mass in B minor. There are also lots of traditional social events including revues, an academic dinner, pub singing, post concert parties, amazing music and much fun.
A unique annual event since 1950, members of university choirs around Australia and sometimes overseas, gather in a capital city for two weeks of intensive rehearsals, workshops, and fun, culminating in one or more public performances.
