Rigg Bequest Classic Music at Glenfern - Concert 4

Let All the World Sing!

Melbourne Capella Chamber Choir, conducted by Nicholas Cowall, with Rohan Murray at the piano, perform a program that contrasts Charles Stanford's Songs of the Sea, the much-loved Mystical Songs by Vaughan Williams with works by little known Soviet composer Georgi Sviridov (1915 – 1998), whose lyrical late-Romantic style finds immediate appeal with audiences. With one performance of this program at 3.00pm and another at 6.30pm, you can choose to be part of a small socially-distanced in-venue audience at either performance, or enjoy the 6.30pm performance as a live-streamed recital from the comfort of your own home!

With one performance of this program at 3.00pm and another at 6.30pm, you can choose to be part of a small socially-distanced in-venue audience at either performance, or enjoy the 6.30pm performance as a live-streamed recital from the comfort of your own home!
