Live broadcast of our performance of Mendelssohn's Lobgesang

I’m off to Hobart tomorrow for rehearsals and a performance of Mendelssohn’s Symphony No 2 (Lobgesang). I’m expecting the weather to be freezing…

For anyone who would like to listen to the performance, it is being broadcast live on ABC Classic FM at 8.00pm (Australian eastern time) on Friday 3 August. To listen on-line, go here and click on Listen Now.

I enjoyed the last one I heard, Cunctator. Calendar noted, along with link to this thread, to remind me when it’s on. Cheers, and all the best! :slight_smile:

Just a bump since the concert’s on at 8.00pm tonight.

Listening to it now. Very cool. :slight_smile:

Brilliant! Just ended – was doing some paper work while listening to it. Utterly magical stuff. Thanks for the head’s up, Cunctator. Bravo!

Thanks Ice Wolf. Yes, we were all very pleased with the performance. The Hobart and Sydney choirs blended together very well. And the Hobart audience was a refreshingly well-mannered change. Hardly any coughs. At this time of year in Sydney it would be a cacophony of phlegm.

We’re singing again in another concert at 8.00pm tonight, but just a single chorus from Elijah - only about four minutes’ worth. Which will be nice, because then we’ll be able to sit and listen to the rest of the performance.
