Celebrate Australia’s National Day with the Gondwana Chorale, Australia’s National Youth Choir. In addition to singing their own sets of repertoire, the Gondwana Chorale and the Stanford Chamber Chorale will join forces in works by Joseph Twist and Vytautas Miškinis.
The Gondwana Chorale, was established in 2008. Its members come from throughout Australia and range in age from 18 – 26. They perform music that is close to their hearts: new Australian works which capture the mystery and grandeur of our land and display the cultural diversity of the Australian people. The work of the choir is a powerful expression of the determination of young Australians to work together to create extraordinary musical ensembles.
The choir has performed nationally in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Tasmania. International tours have included New Zealand (2011) and UK and France (2013). In 2015 the choir formed the Gondwana Centenary Chorale with young singers from and Turkey, France and New Zealand to commemorate the centenary of the Gallipoli campaign, giving the world premiere of James Ledger’s War Music with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra.
Admission to the concert is free — we hope to see you there!
