Gondwana Choirs proudly presents the 2020 Festival of Summer Voices, featuring Australia’s best young choral singers live in concert across four nights at UNSW.

More than 300 young singers from around Australia will converge on UNSW, Kensington on 16 – 19 January to perform four public concerts under the direction of Australia’s finest choral conductors. These performances set the standard for choral performance nationally with repertoire from around the world.

Led by Gondwana Choirs founder and Artistic Director Lyn Williams AM, the Festival of Summer Voices opens with the Overture concert on Thursday, 16 January at 7pm, showcasing all six Gondwana National Choirs ensembles: Junior Gondwana, Gondwana Novus, Gondwana Voices, Gondwana Singers, Gondwana Chorale, and a representative choir specially formed to perform in the 2020 World Choral Symposium.

Nights two and three present the Explorations concert on Friday, 17 January at 5.30pm and Kaleidoscope concert on Saturday, 18 January at 5.30pm, featuring diverse musical terrain including classic and avant-garde choral repertoire, and music of the Middle East and Indonesia. Opera fans will enjoy Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas and a creative development presentation of a new children’s opera, Peter Pan by Australian composer Andrew Ford, in collaboration with Sydney Chamber Opera.

The festival culminates with The Grand Finale on Sunday, 19 January at 5.30pm, featuring all six Gondwana National Choirs ensembles in an evening of song, including an exciting world premiere of a new work for the combined ensembles by Australian composer Lisa Young.
