Big Sing just keeps getting Bigger!
We are thrilled to announce that we’ve joined forces with the Adelaide Youth Orchestra and the Adelaide Philharmonia Chorus to present Verdi’s monumental Requiem for Big Sing 2020.
Saturday 12 September, Sunday 13 September, Saturday 19 September 2020
From the thunderbolt explosions of the Dies Irae to the hushed prayers of the Libera Me, few pieces in the repertoire offer the drama of opera and the thrill of wonderful symphonic writing combined with stellar, virtuosic solo moments.
Performance 1 in McLaren Vale
Saturday 12 September 2020, mandatory afternoon rehearsal
Sunday 13 September: morning rehearsal and afternoon performance
Venue: Tatachilla Lutheran College
Then the Adelaide Youth Orchestra, in association with the Adelaide Festival Centre and Big Sing McLaren Vale, will perform the Requiem as part of their 2020 program.
Performance 2 in the Adelaide Festival Theatre
Saturday 19 September 2020 at 7pm
Rehearsal in the morning.
Registrations for the Big Sing Chorus will open in March 2020 and tickets for the McLaren Vale performance will go on sale in April.
To be part of the Chorus for the Festival Theatre performance, you must also have taken part in the McLaren Vale rehearsal and performance the previous week. Chorus registrations for the Festival Theatre will be limited due to the size of the stage and taken on a first come first served basis.
“This is music which enters the heart and shakes the soul.”
So wrote the great English writer George Bernard Shaw.
