Gifts at Choralfest

Bel Canto, the senior choir from Firbank Grammar School, have given a stirring performance of Gifts at Choralfest 2015 in Melbourne.

The festival, organised by the Australian National Choral Association, brought together many of the finest choirs and choral directors from across Australia together with distinguished international visitors, for four days of concerts and workshops.

Director Philippa Jones talked briefly about what an important piece Gifts has been for the choir since they gave the world premiere last year and then toured to Europe, taking first place in the Summa Cum Laude International Youth Music Festival in Vienna.

Bel Canto gave another excellent performance and the piece was very warmly received.
