Finale not to be missed
Tuesday, 26 November 2002
The final concert in the Elder School of Music's Evening Concert Series - the Choral-Orchestral Finale - will be held on Saturday, November 30 at 8.00pm in Elder Hall.
This features the Elder Conservatorium Symphony Orchestra and the Elder Conservatorium Chorale performing Mendelssohn's Symphony No. 5 (The Reformation) and Mozart's Requiem. Conductors are Keith Crellin and Carl Crossin.
Mendelssohn's 5th symphony, written in 1829-30, was actually his second in order of composition, to celebrate the tercentenary of the Augsburg confession, an event of some significance in the Reformation.
Mozart's Requiem is a fitting finale to a splendid Evening Concert Series. Written in 1791 when Mozart was virtually on his deathbed, as a commission for Count von Walsegg zu Stuppach, the two main emotional features of the Requiem are dramatic strength and pity - both portrayed beautifully by the Chorale.
Tickets are $22 adult/$14 concession/$8 student, available through BASS (phone 131 246) or at the door.
University of Adelaide staff receive concession prices on presentation of their University staff card.
The Evening Concert series is generously supported by Peter Lehmann Wines, AMEX Corporate Services and 5UV Radio Adelaide.
