St Mark's Church, South Hurstville to host St George Chamber Orchestra

The newly-formed St George Chamber Orchestra will perform at St Mark's Anglican Church, The Mall, South Hurstville this Sunday at 2.30pm.

The orchestra will perform a selection of Baroque and Classical music under the baton of their musical director and conductor, Dr Anthony Clarke.

The program will feature baritone John Antoniou and mezzo-soprano Rebecca Hart as soloists in JS Bach's beautiful cantata, 'Ich Habe Genug.'

The climax of the concert will see John and Rebecca joined by soprano, Kate Wilmot, and feature combined choirs from the greater Sydney area in a stunning performance of Vivaldi's much-loved Gloria.

We are pleased to welcome Kate Wilmot as soprano soloist in this program" conductor Dr Anthony Clarke said, "and I'm especially delighted to see that so many members of the greater Sydney choirs will rejoin us for our performance of Vivaldi's Gloria," Dr Clarke said.

The St George Chamber Orchestra has partnered with St Mark's Anglican Church to present a series of four four concerts each year.

In its inaugural concert at St Mark's earlier this year, the orchestra performed Handel's Messiah which was enthusiastically received by the audience and local community.

St Mark's Anglican Church is celebrating its Centenary this year.

"We're proud to be partnering with SGCO, and hope St Mark's will become a place where the arts flourish within a true sense of community" Peter Greenwood, rector at St Mark's, said.

The St George Chamber Orchestra gratefully acknowledges the support of Georges River Council.

"It's great to see the council investing into new arts initiatives to create a vibrant and diverse cultural community, supporting local and professional musicians" Dr Clarke said.

Tickets are available online at trybooking.com/BDZXT and at the door.
