Melissa Gregory’s voice will echo through the Cathedral of St Stephen when she performs with the Queensland Choir on Friday.
Baroque Brilliance will dazzle and uplift as it showcases outstanding young soloists, including Gregory, a powerful choir, and a thrilling orchestra with dramatic trumpet and tympani highlights.
“It will be a great concert showcasing Brisbane’s up and coming you classical singers,” Gregory said. “There will be four other solosist (Irena Lysiuk, Cassandra Wright, Phillip Costovski and Oliver Boyd) who are great.” Gregory is a first-class honours graduate from the Queensland Conservatorium and she recently made her Opera Queensland debut in Mozart Airborne with Expressions Dance Company. “I have been singing since I was a kid but I didn’t pursue classical singing until I was 17 and ever since then I have loved classical music,” she said.
The Queensland Choir’s musical director Kevin Power said: “The Baroque era (roughly 1600-1750) is still hugely popular with a wide section of the musical public today, and this concert will inspire and entertain with classics such as Handel’s Zadok the Priest, Bach’s Magnificat in D, and the lesser known Te Deum in D by Charpentier, which was only rediscovered in 1953.
The Queensland Choir will present Baroque Brilliance on Friday, April 27 at 7.30pm at the Cathedral of St Stephen, Elizabeth St, Brisbane.
