Be entertained, challenged and moved in a celebration of the music of composer Martin Wesley-Smith and his twin, librettist Peter Wesley-Smith in this concert by The Song Company with Canberra Choral Society.
Be entertained, challenged and moved in a celebration of the music of composer Martin Wesley-Smith and his twin, librettist Peter Wesley-Smith. The wit, whimsy, satire and sedition of their music will delight you, with everything from Playschool favourite Walking in the City to Black Ribbon - a song cycle written for the centenary of Federation.
Featuring The Song Company, Australia's premier a capella ensemble, with the CCS Chorus, pianist Anthony Smith, and the young voices of Vocal Envy and the Turner Trebles. Long-time collaborators with the Wesley-Smiths, The Song Company reprise their role as featured vocalists in Black Ribbon, commissioned by Canberra Choral Society and performed by CCS and The Song Company in 2001 under the baton of Roland Peelman.
Quirky yet familiar tunes, cutting political commentary, and heart-breaking reflections on the issues that have defined our nation. Don't miss it.
