Street Requiem plus TATTOO
Street Requiem and premiere of TATTOO
Two incredible concerts in one afternoon!

Homelessness Week starts on Sunday August 5 with an extraordinary experience you won't want to miss.

The wonderful Street Requiem remembers the innocent who have died on the street, while offering hope for the future to people and communities struggling with homelessness, poverty, discrimination and street violence.

This modern classic will be conducted by composer, singer and social-inclusionist extraordinaire Dr Jonathon Welch. Composed by the all-Australian team of Jonathon, Dr Kathleen McGuire and Andy Payne, it stars world-renowned soprano Rosamund Illing backed by the beautiful harmonies of THECHO!R, the Choir of Hard Knocks and the Sing The World choir.

It will be followed by the world premiere of TATTOO, an amazing new work written by the inspirational Choir of Hard Knocks in collaboration with the incomparable Warren Wills. This multi-award-winning composer and performer has been commissioned by people and organisations as diverse as Woody Allen and the Royal Shakespeare Company. Like Jonathon, His work has convinced him that music has more power than people realise. "Over the ages it has supported wars, brought peace, promoted violence and soothed troubled souls. I believe music is underused as a powerful force. Used positively, it is utterly transforming" he says. And TATTOO is!

So start Homelessness Week with a unique experience that will move your heart and your soul and, at the same time, will help those in need.

Proceeds will support the marvellous work of the School of Hard Knocks.

Sunday, 5th August, 2.30PM at
Deakin Edge Theatre, Federation Square.
Tickets include both shows and are just $25 at: schoolofhardknocks.org.au
