Armistice Concert - Phoenix Choir

Date: 
Sun, 11/11/2018 - 3:00pm - 4:30pm

Phoenix Choir are staging a special concert to mark the centenary of Armistice with a performances at:

Hoskins Memorial Uniting Church, Lithgow. Sunday 11th November at 3pm

For the major work for this concert we are performing Gabriel Fauré’s sublime Requiem Mass, with professional soloists, organ and instrumental group. As one of the most popular works in the choral repertoire, we hope that its soothing lyrical music and optimistic vision of paradise can bring a message of hope and peace.

To compliment this we have commissioned a new work for the choir, organ and soloist by Rowen Fox. Rowen is well known to local audiences with the premiere of his opera, Chang’E and the moon, in Wentworth Falls in 2016 and recent performances of his new horn sonata and of his other choral works by Phoenix Choir. Rowen writes in a very approachable style and we are all looking forward to hearing this new commemorative work.
