The earthquakes that struck south Türkiye and northwest Syria on 6th of February have wrought devastation, resulting in a shocking number of deaths and injuries, and causing untold damage to infrastructure in both countries.
Voces Caelestium has partnered with Doctors Without Borders (MSF) once again to support their work by presenting Beethoven's everlasting 9th Symphony.
The last movement features the famous "Ode to Joy" hymn. The words of "Ode to Joy" are based on an F. Schiller poem, singing about the fraternity of humanity.
Our ambitious program will be featuring world class soloists such as Karah Son, Celeste Haworth, Simon Kim, and Richard Anderson at the Verbrugghen Hall at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music.
We hope that our concert will bring Joy to people's hearts and help those who are in desperate need.
Voces Caelestium is currently looking for orchestral players and choral singers to take part in this concert.

Voces Caelestium is a not-for-profit choir and orchestra led by conductor Taesoo Kim.
Our goal is to raise money to support communities in need and bring people out of poverty by bringing together talented young vocalists and instrumentalists to make great music.
2022 September Concert
A huge thank you to everyone that performed in and attended our Standing with Ukraine Charity Concert on September 4! Collectively, we raised $9000 to donate to UNICEF’s Ukraine Emergency Appeal. These funds will help UNICEF deliver life-saving supplies to children and families in Ukraine and help to establish safe spaces to provide crucial support to families on the move.
We performed a beautiful new choir piece, Great Trees, by Oliver Caplan, tango arrangements, a new Concerto Grosso by our resident composer Pavle Cajic, and Saint-Saens’s Requiem to a full Great Hall at the University of Sydney. The concert ended with the Ukrainian National Anthem, offering our solidarity to everyone suffering from this horrendous war.
Thank you to our conductors Taesoo Kim and Pavle Cajic for leading the music for the evening. We are so grateful to all our audience for supporting the cause and to those that contributed extra donations at the end, and above all to our beautiful performers who donated their time and skills. We could not have done it without you. See photos from the concert on our instagram.
A new work premiered at the concert: Pavle Cajic's ''Concerto Grosso'.
Below is a recording of one of the highlights from our 2016 concert: the premiere of an original composition by Pavle Cajic entitled 'The Depths of Night'.
