Cho­rales join for con­cert

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - ARTS & ENTERTAINMENT -

West Gipp­s­land Chorale and La­trobe Chorale are busily prepar­ing for an ex­cit­ing col­lab­o­ra­tive project at the re­de­vel­oped West Gipp­s­land Arts Cen­tre.

Both choirs will per­form Sir Karl Jenk­ins’ new work “Sym­phonic Adiemus” and Gio­como Puc­cini’s “Messa di Glo­ria”.

Tick­ets are now on sale ahead of the con­cert on Sun­day, Novem­ber 25 at 3pm.

The West Gipp­s­land Chorale and La­trobe Chorale will be joined by Hei­del­berg Cho­ral So­ci­ety and a 45-piece orchestra to present the two very dif­fer­ent works. The con­duc­tor is Peter Bandy. “Sym­phonic Adiemus” is a con­tem­po­rary com­po­si­tion con­ceived by Jenk­ins to draw on both clas­si­cal prin­ci­ples and the flavours of world mu­sic. It uses the massed choir as a mu­si­cal in­stru­ment, with the orchestra and a va­ri­ety of per­cus­sion in­stru­ments.

Puc­cini’s “Messa di Glo­ria” was first per­formed in 1880 and is a much-loved piece in the western clas­si­cal mu­sic tra­di­tion. The choirs and orchestra will be joined by soloists Jeremy Klee­man (bass bari­tone) and Tim­o­thy Reynolds (tenor) to make a spe­cial af­ter­noon of mu­sic.

La­trobe Chorale gained a Creative Vic­to­ria “Small Re­gional Pre­sen­ters” pro­gram grant to help cover costs and re­duce ticket prices for lovers of fine mu­sic.

Tick­ets are $45 for adults, $40 for con­ces­sion and groups, and $20 for youth un­der 18.
