Friday 18 February
St David’s Cathedral Hobart
Brass music and soaring church interiors are made for each other; a match made in heaven, you might say. Brass in St David’s goes one better – St David’s Cathedral in Hobart being no ordinary church interior but an imposing stone and timber edifice and a building of significant heritage value.
Brass and Percussion musicians from the TSO step into this lofty and reverberant space for a variety-filled concert. Fabian Russell, who conducted a Brass in St David’s concert to great acclaim in 2019, returns for this concert. Sit back and contemplate the grandeur of the Gothic revival architecture as music from different periods and in different styles envelopes you in all its splendour.
