In 2012, Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir delved into the life, loves, music and legacy of one of the world’s greatest ever composers, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky. For this stunning concert, Sydney Gay & Lesbian Choir was joined by a string quartet, soprano Julia Wee and baritone Paul Smith to perform some of Tchaikovsky’s most emotionally charged choral and chamber works. This video doesn’t feature a Tchaikovsky piece, but rather an excerpt from ‘Dreams and Visions’, commissioned to celebrate our 20th anniversary from renowned Australian composer John Peterson.
