Join Camberwell Chorale and the Camerata Orchestra as they present the extraordinary Verdi Requiem!

Written in 1874, the music brings the high drama of Verdi’s operatic style into a sacred choral work with soaring, lyrical melodies, scintillating orchestration and extraordinary dramatic and emotional intensity. The Verdi Requiem is one of the greatest icons of Western music.

Our soloists, well-known to Melbourne audiences, are Lee Abrahmsen – Soprano, Kerrie Bolton – Mezzo Soprano, Michael Lapina – Tenor, and Nicholas Dinopoulos – Bass-Baritone.

Conductor - Douglas Heywood OAM

2024 is a landmark year for Camberwell Chorale, one in which we celebrate not only our 80th Anniversary, but also the 50th Anniversary of our fabulous Musical Director, Douglas Heywood OAM, the second of only two Conductors in the history of the choir!
