Sunshine Coast Choral Society Concert Celebrates Nature
Written by Administrator   
Monday, 09 April 2007

Sunshine Coast Choral Society has another year of exciting music making ahead, starting with The Creation by Joseph Haydn on 29 April, coincidentally the same date as that of its first performance in 1798.

The concert venue is again the Lake Kawana Community Centre, Sportsmans Parade, Bokarina, and  other details are contained in the attached publicity flyer.

As they have rehearsed Creation, they have been inspired by its jubilant, lyrical and powerful affirmation of the wonders of Nature.    They have felt its magic, and it has filled them with joy at a time of universal gloom regarding the state of the planet.

From this great work, their Artistic and Musical Director Rita Paczian has said:

‘Haydn’s Creation belongs to the 10 musical works I love best.     Its fascinating opening movement ‘The Chaos’ uses amazing harmonies and other musical effects to depict the Earth before nature and man were created.     Haydn continues describing each day of God’s creation in vivid musical pictures showing the Earth as a place of richness, beauty and delight.     Man is exalted as a wondrous being, full of goodness and wisdom, ruler of all Nature, and rejoicing in God’s glorious work in wonderful melodic arias and powerful choruses’.

 Their three soloists are well known Brisbane based Opera singers. Soprano Anita Parakh-Morgan and Bass Shelden Mathieson received standing ovations singing arias at our ‘Opera Favourites’ concert last June.    Tenor Neil Mason delighted the audience with his performance in our Mozart  Requiem concert last April.    They will sing the many beautiful arias, as well as playing the roles of Adam and Eve.     The large Suncoast Symphony orchestra will include full trumpets and trombones and even a contra-bassoon that can be heard when the lion roars.

Concert dates for the rest of the year are:
24 June, 16 September and 25 November
at 3pm on Sunday afternoons, at the Lake Kawana Community Centre

This year the Christmas concert on 25 November will be the beloved Messiah by Handel.
