Monash University Singers | Presented by the Sir Zelman Cowen School of Music
PART OF SYMPHONIC – AN ORCHESTRAL AND CHORAL SERIES.
Elena Kats-Chernin’s colourful and energetic composition has a huge impact on Australia’s music world. Nicholas Dinopoulos will conduct the Monash University Singers in a performance of her witty song cycle Talk Show, written for Sydney’s Gay and Lesbian Choir.
This will sit alongside the world premiere of Submerged in the Greater Will, a new work by Australian composer Cat Hope for choir, cello and electronics, and Eric Whitacre’s Sleep (made famous across the globe through the composer’s ‘virtual choir’ project). Countertenor Hamish Gould will also perform Samuel Barber’s Hermit Songs for voice and piano, one of the great song cycles of the twentieth century.
