MonUCS Golden Anniversary Gala

 

On the 22nd of September, 2012, the Monash University Choral Society will mark its 50th Anniversary by performing a very special concert in South Yarra. The choir will be performing Carl Orff’s spectacular, Carmina Burana, one of the most popular pieces of music of all time best known for its unforgettable opening movement, O Fortuna.

As well as Orff’s masterpiece MonUCS will also be performing Ralph Vaughn William’s Serenade to Music, a breathtakingly beautiful piece originally composed to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the first concert of famous English conductor Sir Henry Wood. The show will be completed with a selection of songs from the traditional repertoire of MonUCS; the music which we have held dearest of all as a society.

Conducted by Patrick Burns and featuring baritone Nathan Lay, soprano Hannah Dahlenberg and tenor Brenton Spiteri this concert is simply not to be missed by any lover of music. Please join us on the 22nd at the Melbourne High School Memorial Hall and celebrate fifty golden and magical years.
