Archie Roach – Mission Songs Project QMF 2019

2019-07-07T16:42:02+10:00

The week-long regional tour of Mission Songs Project culminated in a performance as the curtain rasier for Let Love Rule with Archie Roach as part of the 2019 Queensland Music Festival at the Tivoli last night.  It has been an amazing week taking us to Longreach, Palm Island, Gympie and back home to Brisbane. It is always fantastic to visit new places, but this time is was also great to work with a whole lot of new musicians and crew, that trust and allow me help present their story, and to be a part of their creative journey.

Voices of Remembrance

2019-06-20T16:47:47+10:00

What a fantastic project to be apart of. We commemorated the Armistice Centenary this November with Voices of Remembrance, a moving musical tribute to the end of the First World War.

Award winning songstress Katie Noonan and renowned New Zealand baritone Teddy Tahu Rhodes will take audiences on an incredible musical journey—through a poignant collection of iconic songs that reflect on the First World War experience and current impressions of the Anzac legacy.

Directed by Daniel Evans and under the musical and choral direction of Dr Jonathon Welch AM, Voices of Remembrance will feature many iconic melodies and modern favourites—some triumphant, others contemplative, but all in honour of our past and present servicemen and women.

The talented leads will be supported by a specially-formed choir of 200 local singers, alongside an orchestra of local players.

A highlight of the evening will be the world premiere of a new piece by composer Gordon Hamilton, inspired by our First World War troops and their selfless sacrifices they made to bring the war to an end.

These performance in Carins and Toowoomba mark the 100 year anniversary of the signing of the Armistice – the historic agreement of 11 November 1918 that led to the end of the First World War. It is part of the Queensland Government’s Armistice Centenary commemorations, which help Queenslanders recognise and pay respects during this important anniversary.
