Johannes Fritzsch

2014 GALA FINALS CONCERT

Art Form. Tradition. Future...
... beautiful music and glamour...

This year is a very special year for the Competition – not only will we be treated to some of the world's most beautiful music, but a little extra 'glamour' is being woven into our Finals Concert preparations. 

We're delighted to have the internationally respected conductor Johannes Fritzsch lead the Australian Opera & Ballet Orchestra (AOBO).

To celebrate the 150th birthday of composer Richard Strauss the evening will feature a special pre-concert talk by Maestro Fritzsch and during the concert special performances of Béatrice et Bénédict (Berlioz) and Der Rosenkavalier Suite (Strauss) with the AOBO.

The Finals Concert will be 'the place to be' in Sydney on the night, with a number of special guests from overseas and a 'Who's Who' of industry personalities... both well-known and behind-the-scenes. It's everyone's chance to 'mingle with the stars' at the pre-concert talk, the interval.... and the special After-Party... 

Of course, the real stars of the evening are our 5 Finalists, following their selection from Heats around the country and in London – and Semi-Finals held recently at The Concourse in Chatwood.

Kate Amos soprano, Victoria
Samantha Clarke soprano Western Australia
Corinne Cowling soprano Western Australia
Isabella Moore soprano New Zealand
Anna Vohsege soprano Victoria

 

Our audience can expect some wonderful performances from some of our favourite composers – Bellini, Bernstein, Charpentier, Donizetti, Handel, Mozart, Verdi... and of course, Richard Strauss.

Tickets are going fast... so book your tickets!
