Gondwana Choirs proudly presents the 2020 Festival of Summer Voices, featuring Australia’s best young choral singers in concert across four nights at UNSW.
More than 300 young singers from around Australia will perform four public concerts with repertoire form around the world, from 16-19 January, directed by some of Australia’s finest choral conductors.
Led by Gondwana Choirs founder and Artistic Director Lyn Williams AM, the Festival of Summer Voices opens with the Overture concert on 16 January showcasing all six Gondwana National Choirs ensembles: Junior Gondwana, Gondwana Novus, Gondwana Voices, Gondwana Singers, Gondwana Chorale, and a representative choir specially formed to perform in the 2020 World Choral Symposium.
Nights two and three present the Explorations concert on 17 January and Kaleidoscope concert on 18 January, featuring music which includes classic and avant-garde choral repertoire, and music of the Middle East and Indonesia. Opera fans will enjoy Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and a creative development presentation of a new children’s opera, Peter Pan by Australian composer Andrew Ford, in collaboration with Sydney Chamber Opera.
The festival culminates with The Grand Finale on 19 January, featuring all six Gondwana National Choirs in an evening of song, including an exciting world premiere of a new work for the combined ensembles by Australian composer Lisa Young.
