Cambridge choir in Sydney visit
The Choir of Christ’s Coll- ege, Cambridge, has chosen Wahroonga parish as the starting point of its Australian tour next month.
The choir, considered to be one of the finest mixed voice choral and classical choirs in the university city, will perform its first concert at Holy Name Priory Church at 8pm on July 3 with music by Parry, Howells, Verdi, Tallis, Britten and others.
The choir has performed throughout the United Kingdom and rec-orded a range of albums covering a selection of music including Brahms, Tallis, Fauré, Purcell, Gibbons, Kodaly and Verdi.
On its last visit to Australia in 1999 the choir performed to sell-out audiences in Sydney, Canberra and Adelaide.
This time the choir will spend its three-week tour in NSW and the ACT only, performing in Sydney, Canberra, Newcastle and elsewhere.
