Fantastic Reviews from our Australia Tour

Date: Monday 20 August 2012


The singers produced a full, vocally mature sound, filling the hall in an impassioned manner with Schiller’s great words of hope. The cheers at the end of the work and the standing ovation spoke for itself.' Oliver Brett - Bachtrack
The Choir were the highlight of the symphony. They have a youthful voice and vigour of presentation which brought a brightness and newness to the familiar choral movement. Gregory Pritchard -
The Choir of Clare College (directed by Graham Ross) took to the top section of the Hall – above the platform – and sang with great and subdued beauty. Tomas Boot -
Here was clarity, precision and dramatic sweep. Vincent Plush - The Australian
The choir's rich yet clear sonority and firm yet delicate expressiveness made the strongest possible impression. William Yeoman - The West Australian
The choir of Clare College, Cambridge, was warm, true and magnificent, preserving the crucial line even in extreme high notes and problematic passages like the slow ''Seid umschlungen, Millionen!'' (be embraced, ye millions). Peter McCallum - Sydney Morning Herald

After 11 performances of Beethoven's epic Symphony No. 9, the Choir are back in the UK for a well-earned summer vacation.

Over the course of the tour we were described as 'the highlight', 'thoroughly engaging', and 'impassioned'.

One of our concerts was describled by an Australian reviewer as 'Truly one of the best concerts of the year...'.
