The Brisbane Chamber Choir will herald in Christmas this year with a diverse and joyful concert of choral works from across the globe titled ‘Christmas Cheer’ from 6pm at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Toowoomba on Saturday 11th December.
The festive concert program includes French composer Francis Poulenc’s sublime Christmas Motets, an uplifting Christmas Cantata from British composer Cecilia McDowell and wonderful arrangements of old favourites by composers from around the world, including Canadian composer Eleanor Daley. The choir will be joined by guest organist Eduarda van Klinken.
They are buoyed to be presenting its annual Christmas concert to audiences in Toowoomba this year.
The choir, which celebrates its 25th anniversary next year, performs regularly with esteemed artists and guests including the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, and tours both regionally and interstate, is looking forward to leaving listeners feeling merry and bright with a program of wonderfully rich, joyful and timeless choral works.
“For hundreds of years choirs have sung songs of Christmas joy, creating a tradition that remains vibrant to this day. As the title suggests, this performance by Brisbane Chamber Choir will be a joyful musical celebration of hope, goodwill and Christmas cheer, which we hope will comfort and delight all who take part” Dr Morton said.
The Brisbane Chamber Choir invites audiences in Toowoomba to herald in the festive season with us and explore the joy that Christmas music brings across the world. The choir will be performing at 6pm at St Luke’s Anglican Church, Toowoomba on Saturday 11th December.
