Central Coast Chorale, with Music Director, Mr Christopher Bowen OAM, will present Poetica, from 2:30 pm at St Patricks Catholic Church, East Gosford, on April 22.
“Poetica celebrates poetry and music. “The links of cadence and rhythm, expression and emotion complement each other in memorable ways,” Ms Ellie Vasta, Central Coast Chorale’s Publicity Officer said. “The relationship is song because a song is poetry set to music. “But it is deeper than this, as we relate better to music which is lyrical, having similar phrasing and rhythms to poetry. “So this concert is for all lovers of song, with words by such outstanding poets as Tennyson, Lear, Blake, Lennon, Gilbert, Brennan and Coleridge, and music by outstanding composers like Stanford, Sullivan, Bowen, Chilcott, Costeley, Snyder, Mendelssohn, Beethoven and Lennon. “This will be a wonderful concert for everyone and certainly not one to be missed,” Ms Vasta said.
