, Winthrop Hall, Perth, Australia  

Thomas will sing the bass solos alongside distinguished WA Opera singer Katja Webb in Michael Haydn's 1771 Requiem and Handel's Funeral anthems for Queen Caroline (HWV264). The concert will be performed with the Perth Undergraduate Choral Society (PUCS) and orchestra in the spacious Winthrop Hall.

From the PUCS website:

Mozart's Requiem has an almost mystical status within the canon of Classical choral music. The Perth Undergraduate Choral Society (PUCS) is delighted to present "Genesis of a Requiem," a concert which explores two masterworks which were among the key influences on Mozart's composition: Michael Haydn's Requiem in C Minor, and Handel's Funeral Anthem for Queen Caroline. PUCS is thrilled to welcome back distinguished soprano Katja Webb, who returns to Perth for this concert along with performances with WA Opera in November. The concert also features the outstanding Fremantle Chamber Orchestra, and soloists Caitlin Cassidy, Andrew Sutherland and Thomas Friberg.
