Heidelberg Choral Society – Origins

Heidelberg Choral Society

Presented by Heidelberg Choral Society


The origins of the universe, of life, of species, of humanity.

A new oratorio by evolutionary geneticist Jenny Graves, poet Leigh Hay and brilliant Australian composer Nicholas Buc, performed by the Heidelberg Choral Society, full orchestra and fabulous soloists. A breathtaking libretto inspired by cosmology, evolution, genetics and anthropology describes our origins from the Big Bang to the emergence of humanity.
