MESSIAH ON TRACK FOR SELL-OUT SEASON
Tickets are selling rapidly for Oriana’s fast-approaching presentation of Handel’s perennial and much-loved oratorio, Messiah. With just two weeks remaining before the first performance, at Goodlife Community Centre, Buderim, on Saturday November 25, you do not want to risk disappointment by leaving it until the last minute to secure your place in the audience. If ticket sales continue at the present rate, it’s highly likely that performances in Buderim and at Brisbane City Hall will be to capacity audiences.
But, with a performance team of such calibre, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that interest in, and desire to be at this special event, is running so high. For the (very reasonable) price of your ticket, you get the following:
the highly acclaimed and time-proven Oriana Choir, for whom this will be the fourth staging of Messiah since 2009.
the superb and refined accompaniment of one of Brisbane’s premier orchestral ensembles, Sinfonia of St Andrew’s
the superior talents of four polished and professional soloists – Soprano Elisabeth Wallis Gaedtke; Contralto Anne Fulton; Tenor Tobias Merz; and Bass Jason Barry-Smith
all under the baton of Royal Melbourne Philharmonic Choir and Orchestra leader and conductor, Andrew Wailes
All of these musical elements have worked together in various combinations in the past, and the ‘chemistry’ is excellent. Andrew has previously worked with Oriana, most notably in presenting Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and a concert featuring Mozart’s Requiem and Ola Gjeilo’s Sunrise Mass, for which Sinfonia of St. Andrew’s provided accompaniment. Together with the four marvellous soloists, all of whom have worked with Oriana before, you can be assured that your experience and enjoyment of this concert will be very, very special.
This presentation of Messiah will look, and sound, fabulous.
Don’t miss out. Book now!
Performances: Saturday, Nov. 25, 2.00 pm – Goodlife Community Centre, Buderim
Sunday, Nov. 26, 3.00 pm – Brisbane City Hall
