WINDFIRE CHAMBER CHOIR
Music at the Basilica Inc. has formed an exciting choral group, WindFire Chamber Choir, to present sacred choral music. We warmly invite singers and experienced members of choral groups and senior school choirs to join. The choir will give two performances each year, most often in the Basilica of St Mary of the Angels, Geelong.
The choir gave its inaugural performance, conducted by Rick Prakhoff, on Wednesday 27 March, 2013. The major work was Franz Liszt’s Via Crucis (The Way of the Cross).
Other performances included Marc-Antoine Charpentier’s Te Deum and Malcolm John’s Windfire, Vivaldi’s Magnificat, the music of Purcell
Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings. Participants will need to be ready to perform the work with eight rehearsals and some time spent practising at home. Choir members will need experience in part singing and sight reading.
An excellent attendance record is essential.
