St George Chamber Orchestra (SGCO) returns to St Mark's

St George Chamber Orchestra (SGCO) returns to St Mark's Anglican Church, Hurstville, on December 15 to perform an exquisite selection of Baroque and Classical music.

Under the baton of artistic director and conductor, Dr Anthony Clarke, the concert will commence with a performance of Mozart's Symphony No.41, known as the 'Jupiter' and then feature dazzling soloists and the professional chamber choir Aurora Choralis.

"This will be a very special performance featuring sublime music, world class soloists and a stunning chamber choir," Peter Greenwood, rector at St Mark's said.

Dr Clarke said the SGCO was "delighted" to return to St Mark's for its December concert.

"The success of our previous concerts is a strong indication that we have a local community that is keen to support the arts and St Mark's," Dr Clarke said.

"The enthusiastic reception the orchestra and our soloists received is a true indication of how the magic of music can bring people together and foreshadows not only the success of our December concert, but also the wonderful concerts we have planned for 2020.

"Music is an integral part of every community, and it's our vision to provide high quality performances that bring our community together."

Rebecca Hart and John Antoniu join the orchestra again, having appeared as soloists earlier this year.

The climax of the December 15 concert will see Rebecca and John joined by sopranos Chloe Lankshear and Katharina Raffelsberger and tenor Rob Dennis, and feature the highly acclaimed Aurora Choralis chamber choir in a stunning performance of Bach's Magnificat.

"One of the interesting features of this performance will be the inclusion of four extra, not often performed, movements Bach intended for use only in Christmas performances," Dr Clarke said.

The SGCO has partnered with St Mark's to present a series of six concerts each year.

A City of Sydney Eisteddfodd winner and critically acclaimed choir, Aurora Choralis will join the SGCO in two monumental choral performances in 2020.

Tickets available at the door on Sunday, December 15. Concert at 2.30pm.
