Cho­rus lines up for cel­e­bra­tion

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Health -

THE Floreat-based Perth Sym­phonic Cho­rus’s 20th an­niver­sary will be cel­e­brated at the Matilda Bay Restau­rant in Craw­ley this week­end.

“When you are a mem­ber of the cho­rus, there is ca­ma­raderie, beau­ti­ful singing and per­form­ing with oth­ers,” in­au­gu­ral mem­ber Anne John­ston (71) said.

The cho­rus of about 80 singers was es­tab­lished in 1997 to bring cho­ral mu­sic to a wider au­di­ence, per­form­ing pieces such as Han­del’s Mes­siah, Brahms’ Re­quiem and Rach­mani­noff’s Ves­pers.

In 2004, the cho­rus went to New York to join an in­ter­na­tional choir singing Men­delssohn’s Eli­jah in Carnegie Hall. It has per­formed in Vi­enna, Salzburg, Prague and Bu­dapest, and will per­form Mes­siah to cel­e­brate the Perth Con­cert Hall’s 40th an­niver­sary in De­cem­ber.

Tick­ets for the Perth Con­cert Hall an­niver­sary are at www.perth­con­ au or www.perth­sym­phonic cho­
