Macquarie Singers - still rehearsing!

Date: 
Mon, 22/06/2020 - 7:00pm - Sun, 22/11/2020 - 9:30pm

Macquarie Singers is currently holding virtual rehearsals in preparation for our ‘Indomitable Spirit’ concert in November.

From June 22 we will continue learning American-Norwegian composer Ola Gjeilo's exquisitely beautiful 'Sunrise Mass' and some of Beethoven's cheeky and lesser-known Scottish folk-songs. We will also be starting our exciting new general repertoire, including some great choral classics. So why not join us after our June break!

You are welcome to attend one 'try before you buy' rehearsal*. Everyone is welcome - no experience required!

The Sublime, the Grand and the Tender conspired to charm the ravished Heart and Ear.

Handel’s Messiah shocked the authorities, disrupted traffic, enthralled its audiences and brought a king to his feet. Composed in just 24 days, it was an instant hit and for almost three centuries has remained one of the world’s favourite choral works: visionary, lyrical and deeply human.

Handel's Messiah

Date: 
Sat, 07/12/2019 - 2:00pm

Messiah is one of the best known and most performed choral works in the western canon. This oratorio was composed by George Frideric Handel in just three weeks in 1741.
Following the first performance in Dublin a year later, the response was overwhelming as the Dublin Journal suggests:
“Words are wanting to express the exquisite Delight it afforded to the admiring crouded Audience. The Sublime, the Grand, and the Tender, adapted to the most elevated, majestick and moving Words, conspired to transport and charm the ravished Heart and Ear.”
