The choirs could only achieve their best results with the guidance of their choral directors. In the case of Allegri Singers, Bill Moxey has inspired the group with his passion and expertise.
The other vital component of rehearsal is the piano accompaniment. The orchestral score is condensed into a piano score, requiring quite extraordinary pianistic skills. Luke Moxey has been a brilliant accompanist for Allegri; always sensitive to the needs of both the choir and its musical director!
Although the choral elements of the piece are quite challenging, the choristers do have time for a breather, while soloists perform. For the orchestra, however, the demands are unrelenting. The superb talents and energy of Musical Director David Shaw, of the Orange Symphony Orchestra, and Conductor Philip Rees, will combine to bring out the very best from all singers and players.
The combined choirs comprise: Allegri Singers; The Willoughby Singers; Orange Regional Conservatorium Symphonic Choir; Orange Regional Conservatorium Chamber Choir; KWS Koristers.
Performances: Saturday November 18 in All Saints’ Cathedral, Bathurst.
Sunday November19 in Holy Trinity Church, Orange.
