Date: 23 October 2013
Venue: The Sculpture Terrace, Museum of Contemporary Art
An exclusive celebration of 15 years of Halcyon at the Museum of Contemporary Art, overlooking spectacular Sydney Harbour!
An undeniably unique evening, featuring a performance of brand new songs on the museum’s fabulous new Sculpture Terrace. Compered by harpist and friend of the ensemble Genevieve Lang Huppert, this very special event is an opportunity to commemorate 15 years of wonderful music making by Australia’s leading ensemble for contemporary vocal chamber music.
Funds raised from the occasion went on to support Kingfisher – Songs for Halcyon, a major commissioning project comprising 23 new songs by 23 composers, which is now available on CD. This incredible collection of songs represents the cream of vocal composition in Australia today.
