The singers of Sydney-based choir Bel a cappella are sterling representatives of the great tradition of amateur music making in this country and their season opener demonstrated outstanding ambition and commitment to composers old and new, international and home-grown.
— Clive Paget - Limelight Magazine

Join Bel a cappella and Musical Director Anthony Pasquill for the final concert of their 2018 season Threshold of Night.

Celebrate music that explores both literal and figurative aspects of night with a glorious selection music from around the world including Threshold of Night by Tarik O'Regan, "one of the leading British composers of his generation" (Gramophone) who is writing "music of startling beauty" (The Observer). 

The program also includes works by Kaija Saariaho, Artus Maskats and Ola Gjeilo's Dark Night of the Soul, a work inspired by the grace and passion of a medieval poem and which offers intense dramatic exchanges between choir, piano, and string quartet.

Morten Lauridsen's beautiful Nocturnes will also be performed alongside The Night is Darkening Round Me by Tōnu Kōrvits, and Aftonen by Hugo Alfvén - an expansive work for divisi a cappella choir that is a rich sound painting in the Nordic choral tradition.
