Magnificent Bach

Perth Symphonic Chorus’s reputation has spread across Australia as one of the finest choirs in the country. It’s beautiful sound as well as its meticulous preparation makes their performances radiate excellence. Join them for the first of their 2019 subscription series.  
Bach’s Magnificatis one of the most joyous choral works of all time.  The music is infectious and yet profound, the choral writing complex but memorably melodic, and the solo writing elegantly beautiful.  Like the Brandenburg Concertos, Bach creates virtuosic and exhilarating music that never fails to entrance the audience.  
Vivaldi’s Gloria is probably the second most loved choral work, Handel’s Messiah being the favourite.  Its style is clear and tuneful, the choir clearly featured above a judiciously orchestrated accompaniment, and the arias exquisite and memorable.  
The BrandenburgConcertosare some of Bach’s most popular works.  Concerto number 4performed for you by the incomparable Perth Baroque Orchestra, will thrill the audience with its exuberant and extraordinarily dramatic writing.
This concert will indulge concert goers’ love affair with the Baroque period.  Perth Symphonic Chorus, under Dr Margaret Pride’s guidance, will present a brilliant and exciting evening in the entrancing architecture and acoustics of Winthrop Hall.
