Canticum choir performance and workshop

What: The Coffs Harbour Music Society is hosting Queensland's pre-eminent chamber choir Canticum today at the St Augustine's Anglican Church. They will perform and hold a workshop.

The two hour workshop will commence at 1pm and be followed by an evening performance at 7.30pm.

Canticum is renowned for an eclectic and broad ranging choral repertoire, spanning from the renaissance to the present.

The evening concert will reflect this eclectic choice with music from American, Norwegian, Estonian and Italian composers.

The choral workshop repertoire is chosen from some of the music in the event concert.

Made up of over 30 members, Canticum frequently collaborate with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra.

This is the first time the Coffs Harbour Music Society has organised a choral workshop, made possible with the support of Coffs Harbour Mayor, Denise Knight.

"This shows that Denise Knight is aware of and values active, small choral groups in the region, and we are delighted to present the opportunity for singers to participate in the workshop with renowned choral Director Emily Cox,” Coffs Harbour Music Society president, Liz Jamison said.

Where: St Augustine's Anglican Church, Gordon Street.

When: Today from 1pm and 7.30pm.
