2:30pm 4 November, St. Patrick's Basilica, Fremantle

From the Perth Undergraduate Choral Society Facebook event page:

The Fremantle Festival presents a concert of superb choral classics in St Patrick’s Basilica, performed the Perth Undergraduate Choral Society (PUCS) and accompanied by organist Dominic Perissinotto on the magnificent Basilica pipe organ. The choir will be joined by soloists Thomas Friberg (baritone) and William Huxtable (treble) for the sublime Requiem by Gabriel Fauré. 
The Requiem was composed shortly after the death of Fauré’s parents, yet it features some of the most uplifting music in the canon. Also featured are Joseph Haydn’s Te Deum, and the thunderous Insanae et vanae curae, as well as two beautiful motets by his younger brother Michael.
