.The Giovanni Consort will present an entirely a cappella programme showcasing the evolution of music written for upper voices. Directed by Michael Lukin, the women of the Consort will perform a chronological timeline of works spanning the 11th to 21st centuries by composers such as Tomkins, Brahms, Kodály and more.
The Consort will be performing 3 short sets over the period of the conference. While the times and details of our involvement is yet to be announced, have a look at the Choralfest 2019 website for some insight in to the main schedule.
Join the Consort in the heart of the city for a free public event sponsored by the City of Perth. This will feature an octet and projected art on the outside surfaces of the church adjacent to ‘The Painted Bird Bar’.

This Christmas, Voyces and The Giovanni Consort join forces for the first time to present Season’s Greetings, a spectacular program of old and new music. Featuring Sara Macliver, both choirs will take you across hundreds of years of Christmas music, from traditional settings to modern re-imaginings with pieces for both small and large ensembles.
The Giovanni Consort are delighted to return to the Denmark Festival of Voice in 2017, where this year we will present an array of masterpieces that celebrate the emotional power created by A Cappella singing. Choral Masterworks will take you on a journey from Renaissance times to the present day, exploring the highlights of composers well known for their skills at writing for voice. These include Tallis, Byrd, Rheinberger, Britten, Poulenc, Bruckner and Arvo Part as well as many others. The Giovanni Consort will deliver a concert of both sacred and secular vocal music that will create a deep impression on listeners, encouraging them to explore the works of these composers once they have left. They invite anyone who shares a passion for the human voice to attend this performance and rejoice in the celebration of Choral Masterworks.
