- Kodaly – “Psalmus Hungaricus” -Orchestra and Choir with Tenor soloist Ted Rhodes
- Schubert. – The “Unfinished” Symphony #8
- Elgar – “Nimrod” from The Enigma Variations
Sir Edward Elgar’s Nimrod, is a very beautiful movement that we will be performing in remembrance of four Consort members who have recently passed away, a dedication to them:
Scott McIvor, Tenor Chorister. Peter Yelland, Tenor Chorister & Soloist.
The 8th Symphony of Franz Schubert called his ‘Unfinished’ Symphony will follow. Schubert only completed two movements of this great masterpiece. Familiar to many, it is never tiring to hear and remains a favourite amongst the orchestra members including our Conductor. Rounding out the program is the Psalmus Hungaricus by Zoltan Kodaly. Performed by the Choir and Orchestra with well known local singer Ted Rhodes singing the tenor solo, it is a unique work with melodic moments soaring, churning angst and brassy, percussive sounds. This music is also passionate with Kodaly using his traditional folk songs and rhythms of Hungary. Instrumental music students studying percussion and brass/wind instruments will be keen to hear this work.
Don’t miss it. Robert Mari conducts. Tickets available at Volume One Bookstore on Kenneth St , from members, and at the door. Adults $20 and students 18 & under $10.
