George Dyson Hierusalem
Tommy Tycho Violin Concerto
Alice Chance* Holy Dreaming
Arvo Pärt Te Deum

In April Anthony Pasquill leads the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra and Choir in a stunning concert of uplifting choral works. From the heavenly music of George Dyson’s masterful Hierusalem, a setting of 16th-century poetry depicting a glittering Paradise, to Estonian composer Arvo Pärt’s eye-wateringly beautiful setting of the Latin Te Deum text, which brought to mind for the composer the “immeasurable serenity imparted by a mountain panorama”, this is music that transcends the physical world.

Holy Dreaming, by Willoughby Symphony Orchestra’s composer-in-residence for 2020, Alice Chance, is a musical meditation on the words of A Thanksgiving for Australia by Reverend Lenore Parker, the first Aboriginal person to be ordained as a Deacon in the Anglican Church, while violinist Maria Lindsay joins the Willoughby Symphony Orchestra to perform the Violin Concerto written for her by Australian icon, pianist and bandleader, the late Tommy Tycho.
