10/21/2018 3:00pm 10/21/2018 5:00pm Welcome Home: The Australian Boys Choir returns from their European Tour Weaving together old and new, intertwining historical masterpieces from four centuries with enthralling new sounds from an ancient land, the voice of the Australian Boys Choir soothes. It refreshes. And, with a level of musical sophistication that surprises, it excites. Established nearly 80 years ago, Australia’s first and finest secular boys choir is a leader in choral education and performance and has worked under many international conductors, sung with such great orchestras as the Israel Philharmonic and Melbourne Symphony and appeared frequently on radio and television. In their continuing pursuit of artistic excellence, the choir has worked with Opera Australia, the Australian Ballet and on soundtracks of internationally acclaimed films including Oscar-nominated Elizabeth and The Dish. The Australian Boys Choir’s European tour is partly a musical pilgrimage to explore its musical roots across Germany, Austria, Hungary and the Czech Republic. But these skilled and vital young men are also proud to share masterpieces from the fresh and intriguing choral culture of their Australian homeland.  In this concert, we welcome the Choir home from their tour and have the chance to hear what European audiences fell in love with.   Duration: 2 hours Interval: Yes , VIC City of Boroondara [email protected] Australia/Melbourne public
