Sunshine Coast Choral Society - First concert in an exciting series for 2018 To introduce their 2018 season of excellent Choral Concerts, SUNSHINE COAST Choral Society will perform Requiem by Sir Karl Jenkins at Gregson and Weight Chapel, Wises Road Buderim on Sunday April 22nd at 2 pm.

Karl Jenkins, a composer born in 1944, is recognised as a one whose many works demonstrate a passion for peace. His compassionate exposition of the Requiem in light of the historical sadness that occurred at Hiroshima, lead him to include in a work that is largely traditional, five haiku in the original language. Haiku are Japanese poems consisting of five line and fifteen syllables. These are sung by female voices in three part harmony that is reminiscent of Japanese voices and musical style, while the rest of the work, sung in Latin by a mixed choir in four part harmony, is gently haunting and sensitive, while leaving one with peace and acceptance, recalling the joy at the end of World War One, just one hundred years ago.

Bookings are available from Colleen at 5477 2652, or visit www.suncoast.org.au. Adults $25, concession $22, student $10 and group of 6+ $20 pp. ◦
