2018 Season Launch

  • Christ Church Cnr Queenslea Dr & Stirling Hwy Claremont WA 6010 Australia (map)

2018 will be an exciting year for the Giovanni Consort. Our SEASON LAUNCH at Christ Church Claremont on Saturday February 24 at 4:00pm will offer an overview of what is in store for the year. 

As ever, the Giovanni Consort will strive to develop and encourage young singers to work alongside the very best choral musicians in WA. These singers will take on challenging music that may not be found in other choral circles. 

Repertoire that will feature in our 2018 CONCERT SERIES includes American music from the last century, Buxtehude's masterwork Jesu Membra Nostri, a smorgasbord of choral music from Australia, China and Japan & spectacular British sacred works. An exciting lineup of conductors will direct these performances in a variety of unique locations throughout Perth. One piece from each of these concerts will be presented at our SEASON LAUNCH.

A further exciting development for 2018 sees the Giovanni Consort collaborate with a number of festivals and arts organisations. Further information will be provided at the SEASON LAUNCH. 

After the launch concludes, we will be serving refreshments in the Hall next door to Christ Church, Claremont. I would like to cordially invite you to this launch and I hope you can join us to hear our plans for 2018. 

I would be very grateful if you RSVP and confirm your attendance. 

It would be lovely to see you there and it promises to be a wonderful afternoon.

With best wishes,

Hugh Lydon, Artistic Director, The Giovanni Consort
