In this joyful and uplifting program of contemporary choral music, Sydney Chamber Choir celebrates the universal experience of transition and renewal: the changing of the seasons; the passing of one year into the next; the great circle of birth and death. Featuring works by contemporary composers Brenda Gifford, Paul Stanhope, Brooke Shelley, Ross Edwards, Jonathan Dove and David Conte, Cycles is a joyful celebration of life itself. 

Led by Artistic Director Sam Allchurch, Sydney Chamber Choir is one of Australia’s leading choral ensembles, adept at showcasing works from the 12th century to the 21st. Passionate about choral music’s unique ability to communicate, celebrate and reflect upon the stories of the past, present and future, Sydney Chamber Choir travels deep inside the music to meet the composers and bring their visions alive.
