It was quite a challenge to present our July Concert just one week after the major Lord of the Rings performances with the MSO, but the boys rose to the challenge.
Presented in the glorious surrounds of Elisabeth Murdoch Hall at the Melbourne Recital Centre, this year’s programme featured works by a variety of composers as well as a tribute to composer Benjamin Britten’s 100th Anniversary. Britten’s The Golden Vanity is a staged work based on an old English folk song, and our wardrobe team (led superbly by Wendy DiLuzio and Rose Whitehurst) prepared magnificent costumes for the boys to wear.
Robyn Cochrane had a very big programme to play at the piano and once again played beautifully.
The concert was enthusiastically received after concluding with Philip Carmody’s Disney Songs – and we all breathed a sigh of relief after a very demanding fortnight!
