St George’s Cathedral in Perth has announced the 2021 season of its Concert Series, led by organist and Artistic Director Joseph Nolan, with a new commission amongst the highlights.
The Cathedral continues its partnership with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra in April, to perform Bach’s Easter Oratorio, BWV 249. “This will be the first time a Perth audience will get to hear a fully professional performance of Bach’s Easter Oratorio,” says Nolan, who will conduct the concert. “We were excited about presenting this concert in 2020 and naturally disappointed when we were forced to cancel.
