Aurora – dawn, beginnings. Or perhaps you think of the Aurora Australis and the Aurora Borealis – the southern and northern lights. Either way, this concert has you covered, with the talented young singers of VOX performing luminous music by leading names of the contemporary choral scene, from both hemispheres.

At the heart of this celestial aural experience sits Einojuhani Rautavaara’s Missa a cappella – a contemplative devotional work by a Finnish mystic. To frame it, Elizabeth Scott has chosen otherworldly and evocative music by Latvian Ēriks Ešenvalds and Estonian Arvo Pärt. These northern ‘lights’ are joined by Eric Whitacre (his colourful and kinetically charged Cloudburst), and three Australian voices. Sydney Philharmonia Choirs has commissioned new works from Nicholas Buc and James Henry, with Luke Byrne’s Desert Sea making a welcome return.

It’s a mesmerising program that will showcase the pure sound and musical virtuosity of VOX and inspire you with the transformative beauty and sonic splendour of the music.

Stay for the public reception in Sydney Philharmonia Choirs’ Wharf 4/5 Studio and meet the performers following the concert.
