Monash University Singers | Presented by the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music
PART OF SYMPHONIC: AN ORCHESTRAL AND CHORAL SERIES.
The Chichester Psalms have proved to be one of Leonard Bernstein’s most enduring and best-loved works. Deliberately marrying Christian and Judaic liturgical traditions in a rhythmically vibrant way, this choral masterpiece delights singers and audiences alike.
Sung entirely in Hebrew, it is an overt and moving plea for peace in Israel and unity among nations. Nicholas Dinopoulos also conducts the Monash University Singers in Elena Kats-Chernin’s witty song cycle Talk Show; written for Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Choir, and Eric Whitacre’s lovely Sleep (heard simultaneously across the globe in the composer’s ‘virtual choir’ project). The world premiere of a new work by Australian composer Cat Hope entitled Submerged in the Greater Will, for choir, cello and electronics, will be part of the concert.
