Our 2021 season will be different to our normal seasons. We have a year of wonderful concerts planned but given the changing restrictions with Covid-19 we will not launch a full year of concerts but announce quarter by quarter. Stay tuned for further updates.

 

BERLINER MESSE

Now, more than ever, the healing power of music – and of music experienced in community – is what we all need.
So for our first concert of 2021 we’ve turned to the music from the Baltic region, with a concert featuring Arvo Pärt’s luminous Berliner Messe (Berlin Mass).


Saturday 13th March, 2pm & 5pm
St Andrew’s Cathedral

And embedded in the narrative are two specially commissioned works, providing musical and philosophical reflections for the modern era.

CARMINA BURANA

Symphony Chorus fills the Sydney Town Hall with Carl Orff’s kaleidoscopic Carmina Burana – one of the most thrilling choral works of modern times. From the opening roar of O Fortuna! it’s a wild musical ride for your senses. We’ll also perform Peter Sculthorpe’s Sun Music for voices and percussion and John Peterson’s The earth that fire touches – evocative soundscapes as diverse as the Australian experience and landscape that inspired them.

Saturday 22nd May, 3pm
Sydney Town Hall

SING ON! A CHORAL CELEBRATION

A concert like this only comes around every 100 years or so. In what would have been our 2020 centenary celebration concert, the Choirs will fill the Sydney Town Hall with over 200 voices sharing our story and rich musical heritage. Highlights include Elena Kats-Cherin’s Human Waves and Daniel Walker’s Choral Crackers – a top-10 cavalcade of our audiences’ favourites such as Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’, Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ and more.

Saturday 24th July, 3pm
