Back to Bach

On the first of June SUMS went Back to Bach! They performed Bach’s Magnificat and Cantata 196 – there could be no more appropriate name for Bach’s tour de force than “Magnificat”, which in this concert was coupled with a joyful cantata written for a wedding. For this concert our five-part chorus was joined by a 22 piece orchestral ensemble in order to properly do justice to the majesty and beauty of the music. Held in Hunter Baillie Presbyterian Church, a big crowd turned out to see Australia’s oldest secular choir perform these seminal Baroque works!
