Once again, nationally renowned Perth Symphonic Chorus will present a wonderful year of spectacular choral singing. Under the baton of Dr Margaret Pride OAM the chorus has gained a reputation for choral excellence and masterful interpretations. Comments in reviews from its 2018 season included ‘magnificent’, ‘unparalleled’, ‘stunning’, ‘a refined and assured performance’ and ‘an exceptional concert.’ Be with us again in 2019 to savour the beauty of our repertoire and our work.
One of Bach’s most jubilant and sparkling choral works is his glorious Magnificat for soloists, choir and orchestra. Its virtuosic and brilliant vocal writing thrills and inspires the listener to heights of spiritual balance and wonder. Splendour and jubilation will be further delivered through the Brandenburg Concerto no. 2 for trumpet and strings with its exuberant and extraordinarily dramatic writing. Coupled with these two works is the most well known and loved of short choral masterpieces: Vivaldi’s Gloria. Don’t miss this wonderful evening of Baroque musical brilliance.

Elegant Theft: Duruflé’s Requiem
Unbeknown to many audience members, Duruflé’s Requiem 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. This exquisite work will be the highlight in a concert that will include Duruflé’s sublime unaccompanied Gregorian motets and Fauré’s anthems for harp, organ and choir.
