Brisbane Concert Choir is thankful for the wonderful public support of our concert and celebration (Encore)
on Sunday 20 June 2021 marking the choir's 25th anniversary of formation.
A capacity audience filled the expansive covered open-sided deck at Walkabout Creek Cafe to immerse in the music and surrounding natural beauty and enjoy a beautiful afternoon and evening, with food, tea and coffee served and a cash bar operating. It was a great joy to have past members join in singing the final piece.
Under the direction of Debra Shearer-Dirié with John Woods accompanying on piano we took a journey through the repertoires and stories of our quarter-century with music from the ages including works by Josef Rheinberger, Franz Biebl, Ola Gjeilo, Moses Hogan, Morten Lauridsen, Sergi Rachmaninoff, Stephen Leek, Robert Young, C.H.H. Parry, Z. Randall Stroope and Kim André Arnesen.
A concert uniquely set in the bush of the city fringe acutely in tune with the native surrounds.
A savouring of physical and emotional freedom in the midst of a 21st century pandemic.
