We will be singing Mozart's Vespers Solemnes de Confessore K339, with Ngaire Kirwan (soprano), Nyssa Milligan (mezzo-soprano), Elias Wilson (tenor) and Geoffrey Carman (bass) and a chamber orchestra. With music from the Nordic North, through Mozart to Australian and other popular Christmas carols, the concert celebrates a quarter century as a community choir.

The Joubert Singers began in 1993 as a group of local singers, and over the last quarter century has attracted singers and audiences from Sydney and beyond. The choir has woven itself into Hunter’s Hill’s history, commissioning and performing works about the locality, participating in its celebrations, and in the protests to save the municipality from the recent threatened council merger. While focusing on music by the great choral composers such as Mozart, the Haydn brothers, Vivaldi and Bach, the choir also celebrates its local heritage with numerous French choral works, including by Poulenc, Fauré and Charpentier, as well as music from places as distant as Iceland, Africa and China, and from the medieval era to the 21st century. The choir is fortunate to have had the brilliant and inspiring Rachelle Elliott as Artistic Director for the last fifteen years. 
 
The Silver Anniversary Concert will include audience participation Christmas carols, and followed by afternoon tea.
