The Friends of Music at St James’ presents

(Re)Visions: After the Silence

View the Concert

Sydney Concert begins at 7:00pm AEDT on Thursday, 15 October 2020

The Friends of Music at St James’, with the support of Century Venues, presents The Choir of St James’ in a live recording of a concert sung at The Concourse, Chatswood. This is our first digital concert and we are thrilled by it. With strict COVID-19 restrictions and skeleton staff and budget, we have created a wonderfully warm and enriching concert titled (Re)Visions: After the Silence.
From sublime Early Music pieces, to luscious modern renditions, this concert showcases Australian composers and features a world premiere recording by our very own Brooke Shelley, Missa Ænigmata. Some touching old favourites may bring a tear to your eye!
Please support us by donating a seat. For a donation of only $10, you will help fill our virtual concert hall and support a future for our performances and Choir. We would love to create more concerts for you and continue to share them with you. Please donate generously through our GoFundMe page: https://bit.ly/2EAwyz4
