Banuru Songs

IMG_2278

I’m so looking forward to the premiere of Banuru Songs on March 23rd, as part of the Joondalup Festival. I was commissioned to write 4 poems in response to the area around Lake Joondalup, then the wonderful composer, Alberto Caruso, set them to music for a mass choir and orchestra. Rehearsals have just started…

Many thanks to Thomas de Mallet Burgess and Nicole Warren for this amazing opportunity and for the pleasure of working with Alberto Caruso and Indigenous consultant, Ingrid Cumming at Kart Koort Wiern.

Here’s a short documentary about the event: Joondalup Festival 2013 Choral Project
