Presents A Christmas Songbook

You are invited to an elegant Christmas concert with a difference – artsongs, vocal ensembles and piano music by the great romantic composers, performed in one of Brisbane's finest historic buildings.

Seasonal songs, duets and quartets from Germany & Austria (Schumann, Brahms, Reger, Cornelius, Strauss), Scandinavia (Grieg, Sibelius, Gade), France (Gounod, Adam, Rossini, Fauré, Debussy), England & America (Stainer, Ives, Britten) will be interspersed with selections from Liszt's charming Christmas Tree Suite for solo piano.

Post-performance refreshments will be served.
