Choir releases first studio album
Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir launched their first studio album at the Haydn Sunrise concert at the Lake Kawana Community Centre on Sunday, May 28.
Cathedral Dreaming is the name of the album and it is filled with beautiful, ethereal, evocative and inspirational music.
On this recording, the choir invites listeners on a journey to the mysterious and magnificent cathedrals, castles and marble halls of Europe to be whisked away by a heavenly selection of glorious classical, modern and sacred music.
The exquisite voices of Sunshine Coast Oriana Choir will take listeners to another time and place - a place of dreams.
The album features songs in both English and Latin and, along with pieces accompanied by organ, piano and strings, highlights the choir's extraordinary a cappella work.
The recording celebrates an extraordinary 12 years of the choir's history that has seen numerous state championship titles, two international tours and many successful concerts both on the Sunshine Coast and in the broader South East Queensland area.
It includes works from the choir's concert tour of Central Europe last year that took in Hungary, Austria, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
The Cathedral Dreaming CD can be purchased from Buderim Old Post Office, or online.
