Friday 25 and Saturday 26 September 2020
Put a ring around the dates September 25 and 26. Better still put five Olympic rings because the music that has inspired the world’s greatest athletes since the first Games in 1896 is coming to Noosa.
In a glittering gold medal programme, Noosa Chorale with sublime Hungarian soprano Judit Molnar and former Ten Tenors’ David Kidd will perform timeless music and songs including The Hallelujah Chorus (Berlin 1936), Time to Say Goodbye (Jose Carreras and Sarah Brightman, Barcelona 1992), John Lennon’s Imagine (Stevie Wonder, London 1996) and Because We Believe (Andrea Bocelli, Turin 2006).
The 44-piece orchestra will be conducted by Chorale music director Adrian King and, to add to the excitement of the evening, giant screens on either side of the stage will show rare photographs of historic Olympic moments.
Last year the Chorale’s three concerts were sell-outs and the choir again expects packed houses for this gala event. Endorsed by the Australian Olympic Committee, CEO Matt Carroll says, “The Chorale’s initiative is certainly promoting the Olympic spirit in a most unique way.”
Duration: 1 hour, 50 minutes with intermission.
