Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 August 2019
Following the success of our Messiah concert, our next project is a full performance with professional soloists and orchestra of one of the most popular works in the classical canon. We welcome singers from across the Blue Mountains, Sydney and further afield to rehearse and perform the Requiem Mass by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart on the weekend of 3/4 August 2019 in Blackheath, at the top of the Blue Mountains.
As before, all singers will gather between 9am and 10am on Saturday morning for a full day of choir rehearsal, led by Rowen Fox. Rowen’s fun workshop style and inquisitive mind is sure to find something new for you in this iconic work even if you have sung it many times before. If you are new to the work we will provide rehearsal resources so that you can arrive with the notes and music learnt ready for Rowen to pull the group together. Phoenix Choir will be rehearsing the work so they can lead and bind together the bigger group for what will be a splendid performance.
On performance day we will rehearse with the orchestra and soloists on the Sunday morning, before the performance in the early afternoon, leaving plenty of time for those who have to travel. All rehearsals and performance will take place in the Phillips Hall in Blackheath and the cost for all singers will be $110 which includes the full weekend of rehearsals and performance and any other rehearsals you choose to attend.
We will make further details available over the next few months. Blackheath is a beautiful location to visit mid-winter and experience the real seasons, and there are plenty of options for accommodation, dining and entertainment.
The online resources are ideal for those who live at a distance from us, but if you live near Blackheath you are welcome to join Phoenix Choir for this concert and rehearse the work with us over 10 weeks leading up to the weekend, starting on 30 April. Phoenix Choir rehearses at 7pm on Tuesday evenings during school term times at the Blackheath Uniting Church. And if you have booked online to join us for the weekend of 3/4 August then you are also welcome to come to any of the Phoenix Choir rehearsals, at no extra charge, and get to know the music and Rowen Fox.
