OVERVIEW

Sydney Chamber Choir is joined by Australia’s leading percussion ensemble, Synergy, to celebrate in music the 75th birthday of one of Australia’s greatest living composers. Together we explore some of Ross Edwards’ most joyous pieces for voices and percussion, alongside music by two of the composers who have most inspired him: Hildegard von Bingen and Peter Sculthorpe. We also perform works by Paul Stanhope and Clare Maclean – composers who have in turn found inspiration in Ross’s dancing rhythms and transcendent harmonies – and two newly commissioned pieces by young Australian composers Josephine Gibson and Olivia Swift.
