Following the success of the collaboration of the National Capital Orchestra with the Canberra Choral Society last year in presenting Carmina Burana, the two groups team up again at Llewellyn Hall to perform Carl Vine’s 1996 Choral Symphony and Wonders, a new work commissioned and debuted last year by the Sydney Philharmonia Choir. Wonders is a setting of Walt Whitman’s 1855 poem ‘Who learns my lessons complete?’ The two groups will also perform Matthew Hindson’s piece for choir and orchestra “It is better to be feared than loved”.
To complete this program of contemporary Australian classics NCO will also play Graeme Koehne’s “Tivoli Dances”
