Saturday 22 April, 7:30 pm
Knox Church

Conductor: David Burchell
Soloists: Caroline Burchell, Erin Connelly-Whyte, Brendon Shanks, Edward Smith

Choral performances at Easter tend to focus on the repertoire inspired by the crucifixion story, but there is a wealth of beautiful music which celebrates Christ’s resurrection, and this will be the focus of our April concert. We present music from across the centuries, concluding the concert with the première of David Burchell's latest work.
