The power of the voice
The predawn atmosphere presaged the humidly brilliant day to follow, as the Combined Philharmonia Choirs crunched their way across the sands to commence their final Dawn Chorus of the Sydney Festival. Maestro Bret Weymark followed and the crowd of close to ten thousand early birds were serenaded by the sights and sounds of Sydney in summer. With Lindy Hulme guiding the Festival for the next three years, I was thrilled to hear that she is a classical music and opera devotee.
