Hola Amigos de Coro Austral
We are delighted to announce that we will be celebrating our return to singing on Sunday 28th November, and we hope you will be able to join us!
This was going to be our Tango concert, including the Australian premiere of Martin Palmeri’s Misatango. However as we are only just coming out of the lockdown, the risks associated with presenting it are too great, so we have decided to postpone that performance until early in 2022.
Instead we will be presenting for your enjoyment Ensalada Musical, a ‘musical salad’ of some of our favourite works at 3pm on Sunday 28th November in the beautiful acoustic of St Joseph’s Church, 2a Gordon Street, Rozelle.
The highlights of this concert will be:
Choral music from Argentina, Brazil, Cuba, Mexico, Germany and Australia.
Celebrating the centenary of Argentine legend of music Ariel Ramirez with his great favourite Alfonsina y el mar (Alfonsina and the Sea),
Tribute to the 'father of tango', Carlos Gardel, with a choral arrangement of his most popular song, Volver (Return).
Works by three living Australian composers: Joseph Twist, David Basden and Clive Lane
There will be no admission charge, although we would welcome any donation you can make to help us present concerts in the future.
This concert will be presented in accordance with current COVIDSafe requirements, which will include physical distancing, wearing masks indoors and providing proof of full vaccination before entering the venue. Advance bookings through Trybooking are essential.
We wish to thank you for your ongoing interest in and support of Coro Austral and look forward to welcoming you to our live performance on 28th November.
