Sydney Chamber Choir perform in Springwood

The Blue Mountains Concert Society will present a choral concert as their last concert for 2019.

Sydney Chamber Choir has forged a reputation as one of Australia's leading choral ensembles, travelling deep inside the music to meet the composers and bring their vision alive in sound.

They reach back to explore the masterpieces of the Baroque, the Renaissance and beyond, while also championing the music of the current time and place, regularly commissioning and premiering works by established and emerging Australian composers.

On November 9, they perform Time and Place conducted by Sam Allchurch.

It is a journey around the world and across the centuries in a constellation of choral gems linking Canada, the US, Ireland, Latvia and Australia through rich singing traditions, passion, tenderness and beauty of lush choral harmonies of composers like Healey Willan', Paul Stanhope, Ella Macens, Clare Maclean, René Clausen and Morten Lauridson.

At the heart of the program lie two powerful meditations on the inescapable truth of time: David Conte's Invocation and Dance in a celebration of nature's cycles of death and renewal, and Jonathan Dove's exquisite song cycle The Passing of the Year.

Time and Place will be performed at the Blue Mountains Theatre on Saturday, November 9 at 7.30pm.
