    AUCS Concert Review
    From the Tiser on Saturday...

    Virgins in a Clean White Garment

    Bar on Gouger

    By Elizabeth Silsbury

    "Loll about on squishy sofas, sip away at a chardonnay, have a Shiatsu massage, even smoke (ugh! but it's a bar after all) and enjoy about 35 students and friends from the Adelaide University Choral Society singing their hearts out. It's a mix of cheerful and soulful partsongs, madrigals, spirituals and poppy arrangements from many countries and several centuries.

    Sacred and secular, Shaker and Zulu, sorry and happy, ancient and modern, African, American and Russian, it's pretty well all the same to these mostly untrained voices.

    Roughish tone, reasonable pitch, snappy rhythms, modest but smooth movement . they jump for joy and pump power salutes to Praise the Lord in sober Dr Tye's motet. Bare bones programs, but plenty of time before, during interval and after to mingle and chat with the singers and gentle but firm conductor Peter Kelsall.

    More like 90 minutes than the advertised 120, but still excellent value.
