scc fireside

After the sell-out success of last year’s “Winter Nights”, the Sydney Chamber Choir returns to the Neilson at Walsh Bay with a whole new selection to thrill and seduce you!

Pull up a chair, grab yourself a glass and sit back and enjoy the ravishing harmonies: the deep contentment of René Clausen’s Tonight Eternity Alone; the sensuous textures of Jan Sandström’s double-choir setting of Lo, how a rose e’er blooming; and a glorious a cappella arrangement of Ruth Moody’s beloved anthem One Voice.

Sydney Chamber Choir is also delighted to welcome back Naomi Crellin (above left), co-directing with artistic director Sam Allchurch and leading a jazz trio led by the inimitable Kevin Hunt, as it rounds out the program with a selection of jazz and popular favourites, featuring Naomi’s arrangements of La vie en rose, Norwegian Wood and It’s Oh So Quiet, covered so brilliantly by Icelandic pop iconoclast Björk.

Take a walk on the harbourside and let the music warm your heart… Fireside
