Sing On!
A Choral Celebration

Join Sydney Philharmonia Choirs for this incredible choral extravaganza.

Opening with Deborah Cheetham and Matthew Doyle’s Tarimi Nulay – Long time living here, an Acknowledgement of Country, performed in Gadigal language, there will then be several small pieces including Indigenous composer James Henry’s Murrgumurrgu, written in the style of traditional Aboriginal verses, Andrew Anderson’s Song in My Heart, a song for St Cecilia; Daniel Brinsmead’s joyous Cantate Domino; and Matthew Orlovich’s MMXX a Meditation on Auld Lang Syne, a humming chorus.

Acclaimed composer and musician Elena Kats-Chernin performs at the piano in the highly anticipated premiere of Human Waves which honours the rich legacy of Australia’s migrant history through stories of real-life immigrants alongside a setting of the Australian pledge of citizenship; an “Ode to the Salty Paste” AKA Vegemite; and a celebration of our landscape in “Continent of Light”.

The party piece will be Daniel Walker’s Choral Crackers – a high-energy cavalcade of top-10 choral works including Beethoven’s ‘Ode to Joy’, Mozart’s Requiem and Handel’s ‘Zadok the Priest’ and more.

From their first concert at Randwick Hospital on 9 September 1920, through wars, generations, seismic culture shifts and a global pandemic, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs has become Australia’s premier choral arts company. Celebrate 101 years of amazing music making at Sing On!
