One of Australia's premiere choral ensembles present an eclectic program that ranges from the Baroque to Steve Reich
If listening to a big choir singing Handel is like taking your ears on scenic bus trip, a concert by the Song Company is more like a curated jaunt around the CBD in a Ferrari. Just their six amazingly agile and skilful voices can collectively handle anything their artistic director – conductor and composer Antony Pitts – puts on their music stands, and that’s often some of the most challenging and interesting classical and contemporary concert music you’ll ever hear performed live.
This line-up – spanning from Handel’s 1727 coronation anthem to Steve Reich’s 1972 Clapping Music – seems to aim at a nothing less than a transcendental experience for the listener.
