Byron Music Society’s Big Sing – The Echo

Byron Music Society

Byron Music Society presents “A German Requiem by Johannes Brahms” (Ein Deutsches Requiem), recognized as one of the greatest choral works ever written, Lennox Head Cultural Center for one show.

The great song will feature 100 singers, mostly from Northern Rivers, and a 40-piece orchestra, who will perform this towering masterpiece of romantic music for audiences at Lennox Head.

This will be the Byron Music Society‘s first Big Sing performance in two years, following COVID restrictions. It will be led by Nicholas Routleya local musician and founder of the Sydney Chamber Choir, plus international soloists Gaynor Morgan (soprano) and Patrick Donnelly (baritone), both from the Gold Coast.

Singers come from all over the region and some come from as far away as Sydney to perform at this event.

Byron Music Society President Nicholas Routley explains that The Big Sing events were established in 2016 as an annual concert to give singers the opportunity to perform in a large choir, and the orchestra is also made up of local musicians. Originally it was a concert by the community for the community, but the concept has been so successful that it has now become a major event in our area’s community music calendar.

“We are delighted to be back after a two-year break, with such a touching and moving piece. I encourage music lovers to spend a wonderful afternoon enjoying an experience like no other at the Lennox Head Cultural Centre,” says Routley.

‘A German Requiem’ will be played on Sunday October 16th. A bar serving drinks and refreshments will operate for this event.

Tickets cost between $53 and $59 and are available through: communityspaces.com.au/tickets.
