From Darkness to Light | Heidelberg Choral Society



Hear Two Glorious Works

From Darkness to Light
Rossini – Stabat Mater & Mendelssohn – Die Walpurgisnacht
Conductor: Peter Bandy

Heidelberg Choral Society sings Mendelssohn’s Die erste Walpurgisnacht and Rossini’s Stabat Mater.

Musical Director Peter Bandy will conduct the choir, along with acclaimed soloists and orchestra.

Soloists featured in the performance are Soprano Margaret Orr, Mezzo Soprano Dimity Shepherd, Tenor Michael Lapina, and Bass Baritone Paul Hughes.

Performances are Saturday August 26 at 7.30pm and Sunday August 27 at 2.30pm.

Die erste Walpurgisnacht (The First Walpurgis Night) is a poem by Goethe, relating the attempts of Druids to practice pagan rituals in the face of new and dominating Christian forces.

“Goethe wrote the text to be set to music”, says Peter Bandy. “Goethe intended it for a friend to complete a musical setting, but he failed. So Mendelssohn took on the job in 1830 and completed it 13 years later.”

"Rossini’s Stabat Mater is probably not the most overly devotional piece of music ever written”, says Peter, “but has wonderful virtuoso vocal lines, stunning tunes and beautiful choruses.”

Tickets: $45 adult or $40 concession. Primary student $15
