Nicholas Dinopoulos: Lots of sacred music and a free concert

Nicholas Dinopoulos
We were on a Down Under binge for awhile but lately we've been in a bit of a drought. Many singers have moved on from studying Australia, including Hadleigh Adams, who is in San Francisco, and Morgan Pearse, who is in London.

Fortunately for folks in the "Land of Plenty," Nicholas Dinopoulos is still around and keeping busy singing a series of masses. He'll be performing Fauré's Requiem at St. John's Anglican Church in Croydon on May 19 and again at St. Paul's Cathedral in Melbourne on June 8, as well as Rossini's Stabat Mater at Federation Hall in South Yarra on June 1 and Mozart's Missa Solemnis at St. Francis’ Church in Melbourne on June 2.
In August, he'll return to singing opera, performing in Stravinsky's The Rake's Progress with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra on August 9 and
Piazzolla's María de Buenos Aires with Victorian Opera from August 21-24. 
On Sunday May 26th, you can see him with
mezzo-soprano Sally-Anne Russell as part of the ABC Classic FM series for free in a program of music that evokes the sea, including Fauré's L'Horizon Chimérique Brahms' Four Duets (op. 28) and Sir Edward Elgar's famous Sea Pictures.

The event is at the
Iwaki Auditorium near the Melbourne Arts Centre and is general admission. They are asking that all people be seated by 2:50 pm.

Dinopoulos is a core member of Songmakers Australia under the artistic patronage of famed musicologist and accompanist Graham Johnson. He can frequently be heard in live-to-air broadcasts on ABC Classic FM and 3MBS FM.
