Love, Peace and All That Jazz

Let Manly Warringah Choir captivate you with a variety of choral works by great 20th century composers.

The universal desires for love, peace and rhythm are expressed in many cultures through forms ranging from popular to sacred and through moods from playful to deeply personal.

We celebrate the centenary of the birth of American composer and conductor, Leonard Bernstein, by singing a Choral Medley from his most famous composition, West Side Story. A 20th century version of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, it is a story set against gang conflicts. Love and peace are at odds.

Words from Shakespeare’s plays form the basis for a set of songs by George Shearing. The music features close, dense harmonies and lively rhythms, almost jazz like, reflecting the ironies in the original works. Love has many faces!

Shearing was one of the inspirations behind Bob Chilcott’s delightful A Little Jazz Mass, a work which is light hearted yet reverential. At the close, peace is found through the love of God.

An exquisitely tender sense of peace infuses the Five Hebrew Love Songs by Eric Whitacre. There is an ethereal quality to the music set to words by his then fiancée, now wife. The music embodies sublime intimacy: it is like waves from a pebble dropped into a perfectly still pool. Love and peace are at one.

After the performance, join the performers for drinks and light refreshments on the terrace.

What better way to spend a winter Sunday afternoon?
