The Chichester Psalms and Other Joyful Noises

Wednesday 12 September 2018, 7.30pm

St Paul’s Cathedral , Melbourne



Trinity Grammar School will be commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein with a choral concert featuring a performance of the Chichester Psalms.

The Chichester Psalms is a work in three movements for mixed choir, orchestra and boy soprano soloist, sung in Hebrew. We are excited by the opportunity perform this wonderfully joyous work, that was originally commissioned for the 1965 Chichester Festival. The central message of the work, and the linchpin of Bernstein’s philosophy of life is a thought which we all must hold dear:

Behold how good,
And how pleasant it is,
For brethren to dwell
Together in unity.

Chichester Psalms  will feature The Bernstein Choir, comprised of the Trinity Grammar Junior and Senior  Choirs, St Paul's Cathedral Choir and members of the wider Trinity Community, including staff, Old Grammarians and family.

The concert will also feature performances from each of the Trinity Grammar School choirs.
