Choral Music in Sydney’s North

Our fledgling choir, Mosman Symphony Chorus, is up and running, with rehearsals already beginning for our June concert when they will join the orchestra for a performance of Schubert’s Mass No. 2 in G. By all accounts the small, but very enthusiastic group is having a ball at Monday night rehearsals, with the joy of singing being augmented by the bliss of Rufina’s baking at supper. They would warmly welcome new members of all voice types.

In the meantime our friends at Manly Warringah Choir will be performing Brahms’ German Requiem at the Cardinal Cerruti Chapel in Manly on Saturday May 6th at 7.30pm. This will be their last performance in Australia before heading to Carnegie Hall to perform the same work with choirs from all over the world at the invitation of Distinguished Choirs International New York, DCINY.

The Manly concert will be conducted by the wonderful Carlos Alvarado, who  conducted our Movies concert last year. There will be 2 outstanding soloists in Anita Kyle and David Greco. It would be great if we could support our fellow musicians by attending what promises to be an inspiring performance.
