ChorusOz: Mahler 8
ChorusOz – Sydney Philharmonia Choirs' annual “big sing” – brings together a community of singers from across Australia and around the world for an exhilarating weekend of intensive music-making in the Sydney Opera House. And this time, as ChorusOz returns after a three-year hiatus, we’re going bigger and better than ever before with a complete performance of Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, his “Symphony of a Thousand”.
We’re setting our sights on a “symphony of a thousand” – literally! – with a thousand singers in the choir. ChoruzOz will be joined by eight renowned Australian soloists, a children’s chorus and an orchestra of more than a hundred, and you’re invited to join us.
In Mahler’s Eighth Symphony the singing almost never stops in its celebration of the Creative Spirit and the redemptive power of love. Whether you’re in the audience or part of the thousand-voice choir on stage, ChorusOz 2023 promises to be an unforgettable and life-changing experience.
