Voyage of Musical Discovery 2: Voices & Instruments

Event Details

Before you attend the City Recital Hall, familiarise yourself with their COVID-19 venue protocols.

Voices & Instruments explores how orchestras and choirs blend sounds and tones into a cohesive whole. The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s expert chamber musicians introduce the collaborative interplay of instruments – and their roles and personalities – in Franz Berwald’s Grand Septet, a delightful piece that beautifully balances winds and strings.

Sydney Chamber Choir regularly commissions and premieres works by established and emerging Australian composers to support and celebrate the high-quality music being created here and now. They explain and present a varied selection of Australian choral works and highlight some of the many original ways that composers turn voices into instruments, and instruments into voices.
