The concert will also feature a lovely selection of songs from the community choirs in addition to the iconic Street Requiem.

Street Requiem is a highly accessible, contemporary work including additional English, African and Persian lyrics alongside a modern setting of the traditional Latin texts. While at times deeply moving, the work is essentially optimistic and uplifting. The composers have utilised gospel, Celtic, neo-Romantic, neo-Baroque, Indigenous and contemporary genres and instrumentation to reflect the multicultural and multi-faith traditions of modern city living.

The generous support of the City of Casey, School of Hard Knocks, local businesses and service groups have helped Voices of Casey make this event happen!!

Limited tickets are available and can be booked through the School of Hard Knocks website.
