#Thought is Surrounded by a Halo

Led by Artistic Director Katie Noonan, the Australian Vocal Ensemble combines heavenly vocals in a chamber setting, intertwining Australian compositions with new arrangements of Bach, Handel and Tomás Luis de Victoria. The program will feature new works based on the poetry of iconic QLD poets Gwen Harwood and David Malouf, creating a beautiful tension between ties to more traditional vocal music and modern Australian classical.
