The Gisborne Singers and Bendigo Symphony Orchestra proudly present Symphonia Choralis, a choral festival culminating in Beethoven’s 9th Symphony (Ode to Joy) with massed choir.
Artistic director Luke Severn has assembled a line-up of world-class soloists including Merlyn Quaife AM, Kristen Leich, Michael Petruccelli and Teddy Tahu Rhodes. The famous symphony was Beethoven’s last, and the first to incorporate choral music. Sending a strong message of living in peace and harmony, the work has eternal poignancy.
