Free choral workshop
Five choirs from Bathurst will perform together on Sunday 7 August. A public choral workshop with renowned group Super Critical Mass will be held before the performance.
Organised by Arts OutWest, Bathurst Sings is a free performance on Sunday 7 August 2pm at the Flannery Centre. This will be the forth year that the Bathurst Sings event has been held.
Choirs performing are the Allegri singers, Canbeltos, Panorama Chorus, Sing Australia Bathurst and Sounds Live. Over 150 local singers are expected to perform.
“This is an opportunity for people to share their love of singing. It’s completely non-competitive, just lots of fun,” said Arts OutWest’s Tracey Callinan, a passionate singer who also conducts Bathurst’s Sounds Live choir.
Each choir will perform some of their favourite pieces and then all come together at the end to perform.
“The Bathurst Sings events have been very successful, the choirs really enjoy being together, sharing their performances,” Ms Callinan said.
Following the success of Bathurst Sings this year Arts OutWest extended the concept to Orange with the first Orange Sings event held in July.
The public is welcome to the free concert.
Free choral workshop with Super Critical Mass
A free choral workshop with Luke Jaaniste of Super Critical Mass will be held on the morning of the Bathurst Sings performance. The workshop will be an introduction to a project to make a choral installation for the 2017 Cementa Festival in Kandos. Participants in this workshop will have the opportunity to perform at the Sunday afternoon concert. Anyone with an interest in choral music and singing is welcome to attend the workshop.
Luke Jaaniste and creative partner Julian Day have worked with musicians and choral groups all over the world, creating acoustic pieces which respond to the architecture and space where they are located.
The workshop will be held Sunday 7 August 11am-12noon at the Flannery Centre. Bookings required via Arts OutWest 6338 4657 or firstname.lastname@example.org
The workshop is presented by Cementa Festival and Arts OutWest.
