Sydney Chamber Choir’s Winter Nights Ventures Into Cabaret
June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:30 pm
The Sydney Chamber Choir conducted by Sam Allchurch with guest director Naomi Crellin, presents Winter Nights – the seductive beauty of French song in an intimate evening featuring timeless ballads by cabaret legends Edith Piaf and Jacques Brel, irresistible flights of fantasy from Debussy and Ravel, while Poulenc reveals the dark secrets concealed by stillness in his winter cycle A Snowy Evening. Australian composer Heather Percy explores the mysterious beauties of day’s end in the world premiere performance of her Three Night Songs, and choral icon Eric Whitacre carries us gently into the mysterious world of dreams with the lush harmonies of Sleep.
For these performances, choose to sit at a cabaret table (up to 4 people) or in standard concert seats.
