Brisbane Chorale and Oriana Choir join forces for the first time to present one of the great masterpieces of musical history Haydn’s The Creation, Sunday November 13, 3pm at Venue 114, Bokarina and Sunday November 20, 3pm at City Hall, Brisbane. Conducted by Emily Cox, the magnificent, combined chorus will be joined by Brisbane Philharmonic Orchestra and soloists Leanne Kenneally, Soprano, Tobias Merz, Tenor and Jason Barry-Smith, Bass. Haydn’s monumental oratorio The Creation depicts and celebrates the creation, the wonder and beauty of the world. This radiant vision of the Genesis creation story sparkles with vivid word painting and exuberant choruses. Haydn’s musical wit and astounding inventiveness as he describes a whole menagerie of creatures with a great sense of humour is delightful and the glorious and optimistic music is truly uplifting. “Oriana is so excited to be joining with Brisbane Chorale for this once in a lifetime opportunity,” said Oriana President, Melissa Innes. “A work of this scale is something rarely seen or experienced and we know Sunshine Coast and Brisbane audiences are in for a real treat.” The Creation is one of the most popular of all oratorios. The first public performance of the work in 1798 in Vienna was sold out well in advance, so patrons are advised to book early. You won’t want to miss this musical event of the year.
