Booking Details

The Sydney University Graduate Choir's August concert is entirely dedicated to Ludwig can BEETHOVEN, featuring his MASS IN C MAJOR and the CANTATA FOR THE DEATH OF EMPEROR JOSEPH II. The Mass reveals an intensely personal and vividly dramatic response to the traditional Mass text. His beautiful cantata clearly breathes the spirit of enlightenment and is prescient when it calls for the "monster of Fanaticism” to be crushed.

Conductor: Christopher Bowen OAM

About the choir 
The Sydney University Graduate Choir is dedicated to high quality performances of great choral music by the established masters and by contemporary composers.  Under the leadership of our Music Director, Christopher Bowen the core of the Choir’s activity is the three major concerts given annually – usually May, August and December – in the Great Hall of the University (in May 2006, the Choir gave the first Australian performance of Beethoven’s important Cantata on the Death of Emperor Joseph II). The Choir performs in the annual City of Sydney Christmas Concert in the Town Hall, and looks for opportunities to cooperate with other Choirs and musical organisations. Since 2002 the former Governor of New South Wales and former Chancellor of the University of Sydney, Professor The Honourable Dame Marie Bashir, has honoured the Choir by agreeing to act as our Patron.
