fbpx Sydney Philharmonia Choirs | 2021 Season

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
