Hugh Fullarton and I can’t wait to premier a new song by Andrew Anderson at the Austral Salon on Monday 25 March! Our program consists of lullabies and songs of sleep by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, Britten Falla and more, and Andrew’s gorgeous setting of John Fletcher’s poem Come Sleep will surely be a highlight. Tickets $10, and include light refreshments.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, I wrote a short piece on women who composed music for their own voices, published by CutCommon. And, this evening, I look forward to honouring Australia’s fantastic female composers in From Her We Hear at Long Play in Fitzroy North. The event is almost completely booked out, but there will be some tickets available at the door.
In the lead-up to From Her We Hear this coming Friday, soprano Teresa Duddy and I gave an interview with Stephanie Eslake at CutCommon. We talked about our motivations for the concert, and how we came to choose some of the exciting and beautiful music we’ll be performing on the day.
We’re very much looking forward to presenting our special International Women’s Day program. Tickets are still available, although booking is recommended considering the small size of the venue! Hope to see you there.
