Boy Out Of The Country - Sydney Premiere

Event Date: 24/11/2018, 07:00 pm

There's more to land than real estate. There's more to family than DNA.
A fast, funny and darkly observant look at family, urban development and the progress of life, Felix Nobis’ Boy Out of the Country will have its Sydney premiere for two performances only at the new Pioneer Theatre this November 24.

A family property is suddenly zoned as part of a regional housing estate to accommodate an ever-increasing urban sprawl. At this moment of shifting economies, and loyalties, Hunter returns from a seven-year absence. Finding his boyhood house boarded up and his mother in aged care, Hunter goes in search of answers.

And he starts with his brother Gordon.

Presented as the premiere work at the inaugural Pioneer Play Festival by theatre makers Company of Rogues, Nobis’ ‘Boy’ is a bush ballad for contemporary life, written in vernacular verse reminiscent of the poetic tradition of Banjo Patterson.

Here, old Australia meets new Australia. A country cop comes to terms with rapid social change, a backyard is less important than extra bedrooms, and technology has the potential to unearth old family secrets. For Hunter and Gordon, sibling rivalry and childhood nostalgia collide with unexpected consequences.

The debut work for Director Erica Lovell, co-directed by Goldele Rayment, this new production features a stellar cast including Brendan Miles (A Place to Call Home), Tom Harwood (Things Not to do After a Break Up), Jason Glover (Van Dieman's Land), Jeannie Gee (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof), and Amelia Robertson-Cuninghame (Anatomy of an Offence, Love Child).

“A play infused with the vitality of Aussie idiom and melodrama, that crackles with understatement and wit.” Cameron Woodhead, The Age

“Mr Nobis’s writing is a particular kind of brilliant… Nobis’s command of ‘vernacular verse’ is faultless” Stage Whispers

A story of land, family and belonging, Boy Out of the Country emerged from the Melbourne Theatre Company Affiliate Writers Scheme and was awarded the R. E. Ross Trust Script Development Award.

Andrew Denton, Susie Youssef, Steen Raskopoulos, Andrew O’Keefe, Adam Spencer, Ed Kavalee and Rob Carlton.

including champion high school and university teams who have fought their way through the qualifying rounds!

A Baroque Christmas - Melbourne

Event Date: 08/12/2018, 03:00 pm

Magnificent! Transporting! Phenomenal!” - Schwäbische Zeitung
The Australian Chamber Choir is set to thrill audiences in Sydney and Melbourne this Christmas season
with a program of Baroque ‘hits’ to bring seasonal joy to music lovers of all tastes.

Starting in Sydney 24 November in the atmospheric locale and spectacular acoustic of St Mary’s Cathedral Crypt, the choir continues with four performances in Victoria. At St Andrew’s in Brighton on 8 December,
the audience can experience the results of an acoustic refurbishment that makes heavenly voices sound truly celestial!

In Europe across the centuries, Christmas has been a time when serious composers would compete
to write music with the maximum popular appeal for adults and children alike.
This program represents a “pick of the pops” by the Australian Chamber Choir’s director, Douglas Lawrence:
Bach (In dulci jubilo, Singet dem Herren, O Jesulein süss), Gabrieli, Praetorius, Sweelinck, Schütz and Scheidt.
Douglas Lawrence OAM, a world-class organist, established the ACC in 2007. In its young life, the Choir has already toured Europe six times, giving some hundred concerts to rapturous sell-out audiences and winning unqualified critical acclaim.
With a reputation for its “lucidly articulated” performances of Bach’s Motets, the choir has performed several times in Bach’s church, St Thomas’, Leipzig, including in the Bach Organ Festival.
In 2015, it was hailed in the Danish press under the heading “Australian Choir in the Super League”
and recognized as an honorary life member of Denmark’s oldest classical music festival, the Sorø International.

A Choral Christmas Celebration

Event Date: 14/12/2018, 11:00 am

A Concert featuring the St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir and Sinfonia Australis
In two concerts on Friday 14 December St Mary’s Cathedral will resound with exquisite Christmas music performed by the St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir and Sinfonia Australis. With choral works by Bach, Handel, Bruckner and Rutter, and a feast of favourite Christmas Carols, this concert is the ideal introduction to the Christmas Season.

Year after year sell-out crowds have been delighted by this traditional Christmas experience which sees the world-famous Choir, orchestra and celebrity readers offer glorious music and verse sure to fill every heart with Christmas cheer.

Ticket sales for the two performances of A Choral Christmas Celebration are now on sale.

Celebrating its 200th anniversary this year, St Mary’s Cathedral Choir is acknowledged as the oldest musical ensemble in Australia, tracing its origins to 1818. Twenty-four boy choristers sing with twelve professional adult singers to make up Australia’s only fully-professional Cathedral Choir.

In addition to providing music for over 500 church services in the Cathedral each year, the St Mary’s Cathedral Choir has recently given several concert performances to critical acclaim including a widely-praised performance of Monteverdi’s Vespers in collaboration with The Song Company and the Orchestra of the Antipodes. In 2018, the Choir performed in the International Gregorian Chant Festival in Watou, Belgium, and also performed for His Holiness, Pope Francis in Rome.

Thomas Wilson, Director of Music of the St. Mary’s Cathedral Choir promises a programme of new and old choral works and all the treasured favourite carols. “There is nothing like the traditional Christmas experience: choristers singing beautiful music in such an inspiring building at this special time of year. What a great way to start Christmas.” said Thomas Wilson.
