Dynasty8 Presents Bright Sadness


Dynasty8 is the Byron Shire’s newest chamber choir, directed by Elizabeth Swain. Eight voices singing some of the most beautiful music ever written, from ancient to modern, Dynasty8 and Song Dynasty Music present a concert of devotional music approaching Easter – the traditional time of growth, rebirth and renewal.

The concert is called Bright Sadness – a title reflecting the choice of music from the early middle ages, to Bach, Mozart and modern compositions that all explore the fragility and wonder of humanity, our eternal questions about why we are here, what is our purpose, how long do I have left on this earth, and how can I live deeply, with joy, love and peace.

Featuring soprano soloist Katie Rutledge and organist Hamsa Arnold, the concert will be held on Saturday 12 March, 5pm at St Mary’s Anglican Church, Ballina, and on Sunday 13 March, 2pm at St Martin’s Anglican Church, Mullumbimby.

Admission is $20 or $15 concession, and tickets are available at the door, or through www.trybooking.com/KIUR, or at art piece gallery, Mullumbimby.
