An evening concert at St Peter's Cathedral this month features all three choirs from the University of Adelaide's Elder Conservatorium of Music.

The Three Choirs at 6.30pm Saturday 12 September is a joint production between the Elder Conservatorium and St Peter's Cathedral, and sees all three choirs performing a program of largely sacred works.

The concert features the Elder Conservatorium Chorale (conducted by Carl Crossin), Adelaide Voices (conducted by Christie Anderson) and Bella Voce (conducted by Emma Horwood), plus Cathedral organist Mark Joyner.

Performances will include Britten's Hymn to St Cecilia, Purcell's Funeral Sentences and Poulenc's Litanies a la Vierge Noire, as well as modern compositions by three Elder Conservatorium students, David Lang, Steven Tanoto and Ian Andrew.

The concert is the second of two joint performances between the Cathedral and the Elder Conservatorium this year, following on from the Good Friday performance of Fauré's Requiem in front of an estimated audience of more than 1000 people.

"This month's concert features all three choirs - about 100 singers in total - combining to provide an outstanding musical experience," said Edward Joyner, Manager of Concerts at St Peter's Cathedral.

"The Cathedral is a unique venue, perfectly suited to choral performances. Adelaide audiences have responded well to joint concerts between the University and the Cathedral in the past, and we believe this will be one not to miss."
