Easter Saturday choir with the Sydney Philharmonia Choir

This Easter, the Sydney Philharmonia Choir will present a one-off performance of Bach’s monumental Mass in B Minor in the majestic acoustics of Sydney Town Hall, where the opulence its stunning Baroque orchestration can truly be enjoyed.

Composed at the pinnacle of Bach’s career, this much-lauded example of 18th Century sacred music weaves moments of choral grandeur with intimate solo arias. Heroic in scope – with almost every singer and instrumentalist having a solo part to play, the Mass in B minor calls for virtuoso voices and colourful orchestration, including rarely heard Baroque trumpets, Corno di Caccia and timpani.

For Conductor Elizabeth Scott, recently appointed to the new position of Sydney Philharmonia Choirs’ Associate Music Director, this is an especially exciting concert performance.

Book now for Bach: Mass in B Minor, one concert only, 3pm Easter Saturday April 16 at Sydney Town Hall at their website
