Stille Nacht

Join the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children’s Choir for a moving concert of Christmas music for voices and cello.

Herald in the festive season with the sublime sounds of the Luminescence Chamber Singers and Children's Choir. Set in the stunning surrounds of All Saints Anglican Church, Ainslie and accompanied by guest artist, Samuel Milch (cello), this concert includes uplifting reimaginings of well-known and much loved Christmas music. Music from composers such as Byrd, Prätorius and Britten are juxtaposed with contemporary carols by Australian composers and the world premiere of a newly commissioned work by composer Meta Cohen. In Meta's mournful meditation on Christmas during the First World War, the nostalgic warmth of the holidays confronts the clamour and chaos of the Western Front and the pervasive presence of death - eternal silence, eternal night.

Deck the Halls

Join Melbourne chamber choir Polyphonic Voices and kick off the festive season with Deck the Halls, a distinctly Australian-flavoured concert of Christmas music featuring celebrated local composers alongside more traditional Christmas carols and everything in between. Guests will be treated to suitably themed drinks and nibbles ahead of a performance that will feature unaccompanied choral music from the past 500 years, from countries such as Argentina, Finland, Germany, France, the USA, UK and Sweden. Interwoven throughout will be arrangements or original compositions by young Melbournians Dan Walker, Daniel Riley and Peter Campbell, and a new composition by talented Sydney-based composer Alice Chance. With two performances in Parkville’s beautiful Wyslaskie Auditorium, there’s no better way to entertain the prospect of Christmas and holidays!

This program will be repeated a week later at St Paul’s Anglican Cathedral in Bendigo on Saturday 9th December at 6pm.
