the consort of Melbourne.jpg


Music by Debussy, Mahler, Barber and Elgar.

Melbourne’s elite professional vocal ensemble brings 12 voices to the inviting acoustics of the Elisabeth Murdoch Hall, in a unique program built around astounding arrangements of symphonic and orchestral works for choir. Lush re-imaginings of music by Debussy, Mahler, Barber and Elgar put the precision, power and rich vocal blend of the Consort of Melbourne on vivid display.
