Camille Saint Saëns: Carnival of the Animals

Director: Andrew Wiering
Leader: Carolyn Lam
Strings, Wind, Percussion

The affection held by music lovers of all ages for the Carnival is easy to understand. The very choice of animal names hints at the humour contained in every section - pianists included! We are amazed at the composer’s ingenuity in creating such diverse comic images through music:

Royal March of the Lion / Hens and Rooster / Wild Donkeys Swift Animals / Tortoises / The Elephant / Kangaroos / Aquarium / Characters with Long
Ears / Cuckoo / Aviary / Pianists / Fossils / The Swan / Finale

Antonio Vivaldi: Gloria

Conductor: Jonathan Bligh
Heysen Singers
Hendrickson Strings
Leader: Carolyn Lam
Soloists: Brooke Window, Victoria Coxhill
(Sopranos), Emma Woehle (Mezzo Soprano)

A truly uplifting piece for chorus and orchestra by Vivaldi, the Gloria is amongst his most popular and frequently performed ecclesiastical works. In
our version, the professional Heysen Singers will be joined by members of community-based choirs, thus enriching the choral forces of this most accessible of all ecclesiastical musical works. The many magnificent choral numbers are separated by vocal solos, duets and trios and the strings are enhanced with oboe and trumpet.

Jakub Jankowski: Gardens        *World Première

Conductor: Kim Worley
Heysen Singers
Hendrickson Strings

The Adelaide Hills Chamber Players are passionately committed to introducing, to proven and newer audiences, music of our own time and place. Jakub Jankowski’s piece, for which we received an Arts SA commissioning grant and rehearsal assistance grants, strikes a note of sympathy and recognition in today’s audiences. Jakub’s work dwells on the kinds of social estrangement we have all experienced in the pandemic-affected world....but looks towards renewal and artistic regeneration:

In the words of the composer, “after a period of such dislocation caused by the COVID pandemic, I intend for my piece to be something of a celebration of live music and the acoustic concert experience…. emphasising the unique collective phenomenon of people gathered together and connected
through music”.

Festival Statesmen

Conductor: Jonathan Bligh
Award-winning all male a cappella vocal ensemble

The exciting Festival Statesmen will enrich our Family Concerts with tight a cappella harmonies and classical male voice choir sonorities.


Founder/Director Jonathan Bligh brings the best of British and
American choral education to his artistry having studied extensively in the UK and USA as well as his home city of Adelaide.
