Come celebrate 21 fabulous years of singing with the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus!
Leichhardt Espresso Chorus Founder and Artistic Director Michelle Leonard OAM has worked with some of Australia’s most innovative composers to reimagine one of the most iconic choral works, ‘Messiah’, to place it firmly into our modern world. The result is a testament to creativity and the power of music to connect and reflect our deepest concerns and joys.
In parts uplifting, comforting and confronting, you will leave inspired by the 21 choral works that celebrate the Chorus’ 21st birthday. The works are written for double choir (adults, children and some special guests), chamber orchestra and spoken word and showcase new music by Chance, Gibson, Howes, Basden, Edwards, Stanhope, Walker, Kats-Chernin, Brophy, Chan, Markerink, Pahos, Barker, Elsley, Benedict, Whitwell, Burton, Byrne and more.
So come along and celebrate the Leichhardt Espresso Chorus’ coming of age!
