Voices & Instruments explores how orchestras and choirs blend sounds and tones into a cohesive whole. The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra’s expert chamber musicians introduce the collaborative interplay of instruments – and their roles and personalities – in Franz Berwald’s Grand Septet, a delightful piece that beautifully balances winds and strings.

Sydney Chamber Choir regularly commissions and premieres works by established and emerging Australian composers to support and celebrate the high-quality music being created here and now. They explain and present a varied selection of Australian choral works and highlight some of the many original ways that composers turn voices into instruments, and instruments into voices.

The Australian Romantic & Classical Orchestra continue to spoil Australian audiences with yet another first-class performance of Classical music. … All in all, this was an inspirational performance that was faultless and energetic and demonstrated a balance between reason and passion, between intellect and spirit.
