Sydney Opera House 2018 - date announced for Craig Hella Johnson Choir Festival
The Sydney Opera House has confirmed that the Craig Hella Johnson Festival Gala Concert will be staged on Tuesday 17 July, 2018 in the magnificent Concert Hall.
The Opera House Concert Hall is scheduled to close for major reconstruction and renovation in 2019. Given this, the demand for 2018 dates has been extraordinarily heavy and confirmation slower. We are honored that the Hella Johnson Festival was awarded a date and will be one of the last events of its nature until after the Concert Hall reopens!
This festival of Australian and American singers will be an exceptional display of choral talent conducted by a truly unique force of music; Craig Hella Johnson. The Jake Runestad commission will see its world premiere by this ensemble in this breathtaking venue. In addition, each choir will be invited to sing one piece on the Concert Hall stage prior to the combined choir performing. Choirs will have other individual concerts/exchanges as they wish.
There is plenty of time with Craig for rehearsing and we have rented the Concert Hall for two consecutive nights to enable the dress rehearsal to take place the night before ensuring maximum readiness and ease for our big night.
There are pre or post tour options to New Zealand, Cairns (Great Barrier Reef) and Brisbane/Gold Coast with flights ‘down under’ from the West Coast, Houston, Dallas and NYC… 2 meals, 3 movies and a nap is all it takes!
We know that Australia is a premiere location – for many a once in a lifetime destination – that is safe, comfortable, hospitable and full of some of the world’s most interesting animals.
See you down there mate
