  • Sunday 20th October, 2:30pm at Christ Church, Cnr Queenslea Dr & Stirling Hwy, Claremont.
     

    Come listen to the marvellous Perth Symphonic Chorus present divine choral music to take your breath away and leave you wanting more!

    Duruflé's Requiem, unbeknown to many audience members, is not all his own work. His silent collaborators were the monks of the medieval church whose Gregorian chants he 'stole' to create a unique, spellbinding masterpiece. His contribution was to bathe these glorious melodies in the luxuriant harmonies of the Impressionists to produce a meditative and personal experience for the listener.

    Smaller but no less beautiful offerings include his unaccompanied Gregorian Motets performed by Perth Chamber Choir, anthems for choir, organ and harp by Fauré, including the divine Cantique de Jean Racine, plus a solo work for harp.

    Under the baton of Dr Margaret Pride OAM, the chorus has gained a reputation for choral excellence and masterful interpretations. This is a light-hearted event is designed to delight both performers and audience alike.

    Tickets are now on sale and priced from $15 to $65. Secure your tickets today at www.trybooking.com/BEIVJ or www.perthsymphonicchorus.com.au
