Tales of Three Cities

Saturday 19 September, 6.30pm – St. Peter’s Cathedral, North Adelaide
Sunday 20 September, 3pm – The Village Well, Aldgate
with Sydney Chamber Choir
and Brisbane Chamber Choir

Joyful anniversaries are for celebrating so we’ve invited our musical friends in Sydney and Brisbane to help us prepare a feast of fine choral music. Each choir will tell its own tales with an eclectic and intimate selection of music significant to that choir, and we will then join forces for an unforgettable choral tour de force that celebrates Australia’s vibrant choral culture.
