    Description: For the Term of His Natural Life
    Music Director Michael Loughlin leads Darwin Chorale in another display of its immense diversity and talent by presenting familiar and not-so-familiar music from opera, oratorio and musical theatre. Charles Darwin University_??s newly-refurbished theatre will host the concert at 5pm on 18 September. Inclusion of excerpts from Darwin musician Mark Hulsman_??s musical For the Term of His Natural Life is an exciting feature of the concert. Premiered in Tasmania in 2004 to high acclaim, the show is based on the novel of the same name by Marcus Clarke and is a powerful story about an Australian penal settlement in convict times. If you enjoy Les Miserables and Phantom of the Opera, then you will certainly be moved by the music and lyrics of this new musical. The concert program also features the music of Verdi, Handel, Haydn and more. So, join us for an memorable late afternoon concert of diverse music. Tickets on sale from Saturday 20 August.
