Singers of Southern Tasmania present two performances only of a little known oratorio by G. F. Handel called “The Triumph of Time and Truth.”
Handel’s last oratorio may have never been performed in Australia, and indeed, rarely around the world. The reason is that it has never been published. Nevertheless, it contains all the greatness, fireworks and beauty one expects from Handel’s choral works. Through many hours of transcribing and reconstruction from an old 1865 score, Hobart audiences now have the unique opportunity to hear this remarkable work. If you like The Messiah, you simply can’t afford to miss this!
Fresh from their success in the recent Tasmanian State Band Championships, Glenorchy City Concert Brass and Glenorchy City Community Brass present a program of brass band classics, broadway favourites and toe-tapping tunes.
Soloists include Brett Budgeon (voice), David Eaves (flugel horn), Rolf Miezitis (euphonium) and Carmen Turk (flugel horn)
Gather your friends and family for an entertaining all-ages concert in the inspirational acoustic of St David’s Cathedral.
Saturday 20th November at 7:30pm.
