Bach’s glorious music will be given a new dimension in this uniquely-conceived semi-staged performance. Due to Covid distancing requirements for both the audience and performers, the venue is now the spacious senior school auditorium at Kelvin Grove State College. Comprising two repeat performances, this production will give audiences an opportunity to be inspired and moved by this new interpretation, which has at its core the timeless music of J. S. Bach.
Canticum Chamber Choir & Orchestra
Emily Cox AM, Music Director & Conductor
Anatoly Frusin, Stage Director
The project will feature a hand-picked orchestra of local Brisbane baroque musicians, and will showcase the talents of these wonderful soloists:
Rachael Griffin, soprano
Anne Fulton, alto
Nick Kirkup, tenor
Dan Smerdon, bass
With no income from concert revenue in 2020 so far due to Covid cancellations, your donation will be utilised in supporting these local music professionals.
We’re excited to be preparing a production of this scale in the midst of the uncertainty which currently dogs the performing arts space. This will give Brisbane audiences something to look forward to in the lead-up to Christmas, and will enable us to provide some feeling of normality at that time of year, which would normally be brimming with concert-going opportunities.
Performances will be:
Saturday 12 December, 7.30pm
Sunday 13 December, 3.00pm
