Description



The Australian National University Choral Society, SCUNA, has an established reputation for high quality performances and is one of Canberra’s premier choirs. For this concert SCUNA brings the delights and memories of spring into the High Court of Australia to remind us spring is only a month away. Highlighting a springtime group of choruses from Gilbert and Sullivan together with a selection of English madrigals with a springtime theme audiences will be encouraged to join the shepherds and shepherdesses, bridesmaids, sailors and pirates, peers and peris and possibly even a daffodil or two for an hour of song and merriment!

Founded in 1963, the choir has performed both lesser known and more familiar masterpieces of the choral repertoire. Concerts in recent years have included Mozart's Grand Mass in C Minor, Fauré's Requiem, Vivaldi's Gloria, Bach's Mass in B Minor, Rossini's Petite Messe Solemnelle, Rachmaninoff's Vespers, Requiems by Brahms, Duruflé and Mozart, and pieces by Bernstein, Britten, Byrd, Dvorák, Haydn, Pergolesi, Sculthorpe and Victoria.
