The celebrated Melbourne-based Australian Chamber Choir under the direction of Douglas Lawrence will perform at St Jude’s Church Bowral on Saturday 26 August commencing at 7.30pm. In their program “By the Waters of Babylon” Douglas Lawrence has chosen several works including two newly commissioned works, that explore the themes expressed in Psalm 137: loss, dislocation and grief. As the program shows, however, courage and hope are always part of the story too. The strength and optimism seen in so many refugees and asylum seekers reminds us of this, as does JS Bach in the program’s closing motet. The Choir has recently returned from a successful tour of Europe where they performed in in cities from Rome (Italy) to Leipzig (Germany). Admission: $40/$30/$20.
