Momentum Ensemble and Choir of St James’
December 2 @ 5:00 pm
The Australian Youth Orchestra’s Momentum Ensemble will join the Choir of St James’ for a unique program of choral, wind and brass music conducted by Warren Trevelyan-Jones, who will lead this exciting concert of rarely performed repertoire including Ottorino Respighi’s Lauda Per La Nativita del Signore and Anton Bruckner’s Mass No.2 in E minor.
Joining the choir are soloists Michelle Ryan soprano, Cassandra Doyle mezzo-soprano and Andrew Goodwin tenor.
The unusual combination of brass and woodwind within these pieces has kept them from being widely celebrated and performed. But within the stunning acoustic of St James’ Church, these instruments will come together with the human voice to dramatic effect. Momentum Ensemble is a dynamic group of performers powered by the Australian Youth
Orchestra. Bringing together some of the best young adult musicians in the country, Momentum Ensemble specialises in new interpretations and unconventional works and performs in venues that transcend the boundaries of the traditional recital hall.
Tickets: Standard $50/Concession $40/Student $10
The program: BRUCKNER Mass No.2 in E minor/ RESPIGHI Lauda per la Natività del Signore/ GABRIELI Sonata Pian’e Forte
