Sydney University Graduate Choir presents

Verdi Messa da Requiem

Sydney Town Hall

12 Nov 2017

The Sydney University Graduate Choir and its Music Director, Christopher Bowen OAM, is delighted to announce a performance of Verdi’s powerful Requiem in the magnificent Sydney Town Hall. Part of the Choir’s Sydney Sings… series, it is presented with a large guest chorus drawn from across NSW and a full orchestra of professional musicians brought together specially for the occasion.

 

The Verdi Requiem is a masterpiece of the Romantic era. Marshalling his resources as a dramatist and lyrical composer, Verdi, one of the greatest opera composers of all time, created a powerful and moving reflection on life and death.

 

The soloists assembled for this performance are a particularly fine ensemble of professional singers, all of whom have significant achievements in operatic repertoire to bring to their performance. It promises to be an unforgettable afternoon of music-making.

 

Soloists:
Natalie Aroyan – soprano
Ashlyn Tymms – alto
Andrew Goodwin – tenor
Adrian Tamburini – bass
