Spirit of Olympia - Music of the Olympic Games
NOOSA CHORALE’S GOLD MEDAL OLYMPIC CONCERT - in a glittering gold medal program the Noosa Chorale, conducted by Adrian King and with Noosa favourites, Hungarian soprano Judit Molnar and former Ten Tenors’ David Kidd, will perform some of the timeless music and songs from the Olympics since 1896.
Music like Chariots of Fire (related to Paris, 1924); Handel’s The Hallelujah Chorus (Berlin, 1936); Friends for Life (Jose Carreras and Sarah Brightman, Barcelona 1992); John Lennon’s Imagine (Stevie Wonder, London 1996); Because We Believe (Andrea Bocelli, Turin 2006) and Jerusalem (London, 2012).
Giant screens on either side of the stage will show rare photographs of historic Olympic moments.
Special guest, Olympian Dawn Fraser AC MBE OLY, is the Chorale's ambassador for these unique concerts.
The concept is particularly timely as the Olympics are being staged in Tokyo in July and August this year.
