25 July @ Church of the Resurrection, Swanbourne ·
Presented by The Giovanni Consort ·

In the second concert of their 2019 series, The Giovanni Consort will examine the  world of Winter, and how many composers reflect this season in their works. Composers such as Ola Gjeilo, Francis Poulenc and Benjamin Britten successfully portray coldness in their music, especially those that have a Christmas theme.

Joining this list of household names are lesser known composers including Sven David Sandstrom and Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson, who deserve an equal level of recognition for their captivating uses of harmony and melody.

Artistic Director Hugh Lydon will conduct The Giovanni Consort as they perform music that will warm the soul. Joining Hugh to conduct will be Ry Charleson, who will be directing the Consort for the first time. Ry has curated the program, and has carefully selected music that will bring a wintery perspective of Christmas to WA.

The Giovanni Consort will perform these hypnotic works in the iconic surroundings of the Church of the Resurrection in Swanbourne and the adjoining hall, which will be converted into a German style Christmas market for the first half of the concert.

Mulled wine and other delicacies will be served throughout the performance.
