In 2020 Sydney Philharmonia Choirs celebrated its 100th birthday, in 2023 the Centenary Circle lives on in name and intent to achieve a second centenary with the same purpose; to support excellence in choral music.
Joining the Centenary Circle means joining a group of passionate music lovers who are dedicated to the future of Sydney Philharmonia Choirs.
Since 2012, the members of the Centenary Circle have committed to building sufficient financial reserves to ensure Sydney Philharmonia Choirs can fittingly celebrate its milestone birthday. Over the years, new members have joined the Centenary Circle, determined to be part of this historic event. Despite the Covid pandemic SPC managed to celebrate in a small way with a digital presentation of Elena Kats-Chernin’s new work “Human Waves” and with the 100 Minutes of New Australia Music commissioning program, both supported by the Centenary Circle.
Looking beyond 2020, Centenary Circle members believe it is vital to provide future generations of Australian singers and musicians the opportunity to perform world-class choral music in significant venues. No other organisation currently provides these opportunities.
The Centenary Circle is dedicated to the enduring artistic success of Sydney Philharmonia Choirs for the next 100 years and will focus on funding:
