Event description

Description

The Choir of Trinity College will present a varied concert championing new music by Australian composers, including works by Alice Chance, Ross Edwards and Brooke Shelley, alongside the celebrated Mass in G Minor by Ralph Vaughan Williams.

The Choir has collaborated with various orchestras, instrumental ensembles and conductors, including performances of JS Bach’s St Matthew Passion with Jeremy Summerly in 2011, the St John Passion with Stephen Layton in 2012 and Handel’s Messiah in 2016. In 2018 the Choir performed the role of the semi-chorus in Edward Elgar’s Dream of Gerontius with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis, and released the latest in a long line of CD recordings, Beneath the Incense Tree, a collection of carols for Advent, Christmas and Epiphany. Their next CD, of music by Ross Edwards and other contemporary composers, is due for release in May 2019.

The Choir has undertaken nine international tours, most recently to Spain, France and the UK during July 2018. Over the past ten years the Choir has also visited Germany, Singapore, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Baltic States, Russia, Canada and the United States.

The Choir is comprised of students studying a wide range of subjects, many of whom are residents at Trinity College, but with others drawn from other universities in Melbourne.
