Victoria Chorale presents two wonderful pieces of music with the Art of Sound Orchestra and conductor Mario Dobernig.


A lively semi-staged performance of Purcell’s opera Dido and Aeneas

This marvellous work tells the story of Dido, the Queen of Carthage, and her ill-fated love encounter with the Trojan Prince Aeneas.


Victoria Chorale’s presentation of Purcell’s evocative music captures the fun of rowdy sailors and caustic witches alongside the stirring emotion of a tragic love story.  It culminates in one of opera’s great moments as Dido (Sally-Anne Russell) hauntingly sings ‘Remember me’.


Vivaldi’s Magnificat

The superb Magnificat in G minor by Vivaldi conveys a majestic sense of awe and drama.   This work is truly a gem.

Both of us really enjoyed the concert – the music and the atmosphere.  Very special to be listening to such beautiful singing in that wonderful building.  

Looking forward to the Christmas Concert.

Congratulations on a fine concert this evening. I enjoyed it very much indeed. I did enjoy hearing the Salieri - I thought the work was charming. The warmth of the choir's sound certainly made a big impression with that initial entry and I thought all the work was most carefully prepared. I was especially impressed with the semiquaver runs in the Mozart, very crisp indeed! 

Sally-Anne Russell has a very beautiful voice and I loved 'Hope is a thing with feathers'.

Very good orchestral playing too ... and extremely well attended.
