250 Singers – One Voice: A Benefit Concert

Saturday 5 February, 8 pm, Melbourne Town Hall
Conductor: Jonathan Grieves-Smith
Soloists: Kylie Pointer, Lauren Oldham (sopranos), Kerrie Bolton (mezzo-soprano), Mark Fowler (tenor), Derek Welton (bass)
Program: Anton Bruckner, Mass in E minor (1882); Zoltán Kodály: Missa brevis (1942–44)
Notes: Fund-raising benefit concert for relief of tsunami victims in Asia. The orchestra for the Bruckner were wind and brass players of Orchestra Victoria; the organist for the Kodály was Jonathan Bradley.
Review: Joel Crotty, ‘Chorus celebrating en masse’, Age, 8 February 1995, p.A3:8. "For more than half a century the choral societies from universities across Australia have gathered annually to present a series of concerts … This year the finale [sic] program focused on Bruckner’s E minor Mass and Kodaly’s Missa Brevis, and the large choir handled the material reasonably well … [T]he Brucknerian quirks occasionally pushed the choir out of their confort zone. There were, however, some beautiful moments, particularly in the legato phrasing, while the dynamic shading was given some thoughtful attention."
