150 Psalms in Adelaide

Location: Adelaide, Australia
about us

150 Psalms

Today we see refugees searching for a safe haven, leaders who abuse their power, people who place fear above courage, or courage above fear. Topical themes, for thousands of years already. The project 150 Psalms regards the Psalms as a mirror of society: great themes from 3,000 years ago are still relevant today. In 2 days in 2017, 12 concerts took place, by initiator Netherlands Chamber Choir (Nederlands Kamerkoor) and three other world-class chamber choirs, invited by the Netherlands Chamber Choir: The Tallis Scholars, The Choir of Trinity Wall Street and Det Norske Solistkor. After this, 150 Psalms traveled to the White Light Festival (Lincoln Center) and Klara Festival (Brussels) – and the journey continues in 2020 to Australia during the Adelaide Festival!
