Sydney Chamber Choir Fireside

June 29 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Sydney Chamber Choir presents Fireside, a selection of classical, jazz and popular favourites, in a two-show collaboration with a jazz trio led by Kevin Hunt and co-directed by Naomi Crellin and Artistic Director Sam Allchurch. The concerts are at 5 pm and 8 pm on Saturday 29 June, 2024.

After the sell-out success of last year’s Winter Nights, the Sydney Chamber Choir returns to the Neilson at Walsh Bay with a whole new selection of music in an intimate and unusual concert setting. On the program are René Clausen’s Tonight Eternity Alone;  Jan Sandström’s double-choir setting of Lo, how a rose e’er blooming; and a glorious a cappella arrangement of Ruth Moody’s beloved anthem One Voice.

Sydney Chamber Choir is welcomes back Naomi Crellin co-directing with artistic director Sam Allchurch and leading a jazz trio led by Kevin Hunt, as they round out the program with Naomi’s arrangements of La vie en rose, Norwegian Wood and It’s Oh So Quiet, covered so brilliantly by Icelandic pop iconoclast Björk.
