THE QUEENSLAND CHOIR 2018 CHORAL SEASON HIGHLIGHTS

  • BAROQUE BRILLIANCE 

Friday April 27 at 7.30pm - St Stephen's Cathedral  
    Charpentier: Te Deum in D
    Handel: Zadok the Priest
    JS Bach: Magnificat in D

A concert of sumptuous and joyous choral music from the Baroque for choir and an orchestra including Charpentier's rarely performed French Baroque masterpiece, Te Deum, Handel's grandly regal and ever popular Coronation Anthem, and JS Bach’s Magnificat, his most brilliant and flamboyantly jubilant masterpiece for choir.

  • CHORAL SPECTACULAR
    Sunday June 3 at 3:00pm - Brisbane City Hall

A concert to celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the 4MBS Festival of Classics featuring both the Queensland Choir and the Brisbane Chorale combining in a spectacular programme of great choral music with orchestra and organ in the Brisbane City Hall. Excerpts from Handel's Messiah, the Vivaldi Gloria, the Requiems of Mozart and Verdi and Orff's Carmina Burana plus Bach's Jesu, joy of man's desiring, Parry's Jerusalem and opera choruses by Verdi, Wagner and Mascagni. 

  • SUNDAY SERENADES
    Sunday August 19 at 3.00pm - Wynnum Municipal Hall 
    Sunday August 26 at 3.00pm – Sandgate Town Hall

A return of our popular Sunday afternoon concerts in two of our favourite bayside venues. A programme made up of excerpts from our repertoire including music by Handel, Mozart, Brahms and Faure, opera choruses by Verdi, Wagner and Rossini, interspersed with solos and a few new items, including some lighter music. A highly enjoyable programme for audience and chorus.

  • Handel: SAMSON

Sunday October 28 at 2.30pm - Old Museum Building 

A full performance of one of Handel's greatest dramatic oratorios, Samson. Written after he completed Messiah, it tells the story of Samson and Delilah, with contrasting grave and carefree, hedonistic choruses and some magnificent solos. One of the greatest works in the oratorio repertoire.

  • SOUNDS OF THE SEASON
    Sunday December 9 at 2.30pm - Old Museum Building  

A programme of seasonal music by Victoria, Bach, Bruckner, Saint-Saens, Vaughan Williams and Lauridsen along with traditional Christmas carols for choir, organ and brass performed in Brisbane's historic Old Museum Building. The audience will be invited to join the choir in singing some of the carols as well as for some traditional Christmas fare afterwards to mark the end of the Choir's 2018 season.
