The Song Company’s Songs From the Heart
October 2, 2022 @ 4:00 pm
The Song Company returns to Riverside Theatres with Songs From the Heart, a new creative collaboration with Indigenous composers and singers Elizabeth Sheppard (Yamatji/Gandangarra) and Sonya Hollowell (Dharawal).
Elizabeth and Sonya, along with Artistic Director, Antony Pitts, and seven of The Song Company’s Principal and Ensemble Artists will present an a cappella performance inspired by the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
In uncertain times, some things become more certain and necessary than ever. For those living in Australia, engaging directly with the experience of First Nations hosts is the meaningful way forward into the future. The Song Company has worked with Indigenous artists and musicians over many years, from William Barton to dance company Karul Projects. Songs from the Heart’s text and principles underlying the Uluru Statement are the direct focus and inspiration of Elizabeth and Sonya’s musical creativity, confronting the past and the present with newly created music of intense beauty and raw emotion.
The Song Company is Australia’s leading vocal ensemble, presenting music from all times and places. Since its beginnings in 1984, it has captivated Australian and international audiences with exquisite performances of vocal work ranging from the 10th century to contemporary compositions.
