The massed choir of Noosa Chorale, combined with four award-winning vocal soloists, and three highly respected instrumental soloists on grand pianos and harmonium, bring Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle to The J this May. This epic piece by the great Italian opera composer is no small mass, nor especially solemn. It is a grand masterpiece and the music, according to Music Director Adrian King, ranges from 'a hushed lyrical intensity to an animated, boisterous and high spirited flamboyance with an abundance of memorable tunes and rhythmic vitality for which Rossini has become justly famous.'
