MOZART'S REQUIEM (Luscious Program)
Date: Friday, 17th May
Time: 7:30pm - 9.00pm
Venue: St. Patrick’s Cathedral, Parramatta

Vienna, June 1791.

Juggling multiple commissions and battling worsening health, Mozart took on this work for a beautiful young Countess, a composition he would never complete. By December of that year, at a mere 35 years old, he left behind a despairing wife and two young children, creating a timeless testament to his genius.

Mozart's Requiem in D Minor is a towering monument of the choral repertoire. Let the full force of River City Voices carry you through Mozart’s testament of power, faith, awe and hope as the choir joins for the first time with the dynamic young Western Sydney Philharmonic. Four magnificent soloists and the luscious acoustic of Saint Patrick's Cathedral complete an exquisite performance.

"I am writing this Requiem for myself", Mozart said — but a work this beloved surely speaks to us all.

CANCEL CHOIR (Brave Program)
Date: Saturday, 17th August
Matinee Performance: 3.30pm - 4.30pm
Evening Performance: 7:30pm - 8.30pm
Venue: Macarthur Girls High School, Stewart Street (off Thomas street) Paramatta

So, your favourite musician brutally murdered his wife. And her lover. The songwriter you’ve been following for years just dropped a track fat-shaming his best friend. And you have a growing suspicion that the director whose stuff you adore might be just a teensy bit antisemitic…What do you do?

Welcome to CANCEL CHOIR, where River City Voices serves up a showcase of spectacular song that dishes the dirt on your favourite classical musicians (and some favourites you mightn’t have met yet).

This short, sharp, and spiky show features music by Gesualdo, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Puccini and more, to ask the big questions - why do we cancel some artists and not others? And what’s the cost?

Sarah Penicka-Smith  |  Conductor
Philip Eames  |  Pianist
